In 2020, Colombia finally put wheels in motion to end the barbaric spectacle of bullfighting. The draft law passed in Bogota to ban the practice will hopefully spread nationwide. This cruel practice endangers both animals and spectators and must come to an end.
Bullfighting has a long history in Colombia and is a cultural and artistic institution, especially among elder members of the establishment with conservative viewpoints. Laws should uphold this expression of the nation's rich history.
