Its funny you think this has any support from spaniards, this is is customary in small towns around "old" spain.

If you asked 95% of spaniards are against bullfighting and against hunting dog massacres, but for some reason the two biggest parties and podemos dont see them as pressing issues that will win them votes and instead focus in rent prices, feminism and minorities.

Buddy, I can tell you for a fact that “95% of spaniards are against bullfighting” is outright bullshit.

Well, ive been in spain for 32 years, I guess you know better ?

We have to differenciate though, most people like "encierros" which is what's done for example in "San Fermines", but most, specially under 40 are absolutely NOT ok with the animal cruelty that's executed in "corridas de toros".

Animal cruelty is more normal in small towns far from the cities, but judging spain as a whole for that would be like judging the us as a whole because it still has sundown towns in the south.
