Well, the fact that they will not broadcast it is no sign that it will be stopped. I have lived here for years and I can tell you that there is a significant percentage of the Spanish people that have an inborn instinct to abuse animals. I have seen videos of geese thrown out of attic windows, goats being abused, bulls with torches tied to their horns and so on. I do not see this so called "sport" or "art", or whatever it is, stopping in my lifetime!
