Every year in November, a bizarre and nightmarish festival known as "Toro Jubilo" is held in Soria, Spain.
During this cruel event, residents affix balls of flammable tar (or pitch) to the horns of terrified, restrained bulls. The balls of tar are then set on fire, and the panicked animals—either tied to stakes in public squares or released to run madly through the streets—are left to burn in agony.
For hours, the tar burns like a bonfire on the bulls' heads, scorching their faces and bodies. Many bulls reportedly crash into walls in blind terror. Their carcasses are later divided among the participants for consumption—residents apparently believe that consuming the flesh of the tortured animals provides them with fertility and invincibility.

Stop this event! Contact Soria officials and politely urge them to ban Toro Jubilo starting this year!
