Felip is absolutely right. I've been married to a Portuguese woman for 20 years. Been to Portugal 4 times. Beautiful country, beautiful weather, delicious food and wine. The people are hospitable, friendly, and down to earth....good people. With all the advancements Portugal makes for its people, environment, and animal welfare, the government needs to take this next step and stop shaming the Portuguese in the eyes of the world. I love everything about Portugal, but not bullfighting.

Demolish all bullrings in Portugal and make bull fighting illegal. They are barbaric places with no function in a civilised society. Portugal is shamed by their continued existence.
