by Petition

This act of barbarism is not only against the law, it is completely unacceptable animal abuse. I am so sickened watching this video and sharing it. These poor bulls are tormented and tortured in the name of entertainment! They are bitten repeatedly and bleeding from their wounds. These dogs are also hurt when they are gored, tra...
