Carnaval Bull Fight has not received the permits yet…

As of yet, the bullfight that will be part of the Carnaval events has not received permits from the Municipal Authorities despite the event being already announced by the Cultura Institute and tickets are available for sale.

Ecology Director, Lourdes San Juan, said that they are evaluating this matter because bullfighting is not banned in Mazatlan but there is a National law against animal cruelty which may be in effect.

She said that citizens will define the authorities’ approach to modifying the law because so far there is no legal document to ban bullfighting.

“All the involved parties have to come to an agreement, starting with who authorizes the permits, the bullfight supporters and animal protection organizations. One side sees bullfighting as a tradition while the other side is for animal rights and the laws that protect them”, said Lourdes

The majority of Mexicans are against animal cruelty in spectacles and don’t want to see them take place in Mexico, this according to Parametría, a leading polling agency who found that 73 percent of Mexicans support a nationwide ban on bullfighting.

Sonora was the first Mexican State to ban bullfights in 2013. Guerrero and Coahuila followed in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Mexico City regulation recognized animals as sentient beings and paved the way for ending animal cruelty in public spectacles.
