  • 1. PROFESSOR OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VETERINARY MEDICINE OF MADRID PRESENTS STUDY AND STATES THAT "IT IS AN ANACHRONISM AND A CONTRADICTION THAT THE VETERINARY PROFESSION SUPPORTS AND CONTRIBUTES TO BULLFIGHTING".In Spain, veterinarians may specialize in the care, preparation and assessment of the adequacy of bulls for the bullfighting show. Miguel Ibañez Talegón, Professor of Ethology of the veterinary faculty of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and José Enrique Zaldivar Laguía, president of AVAT, presented evidence of the enormous suffering of the bull during the bullfight. Madrid, April 20, 2012. - The Association of Veterinarians Abolitionists of bullfighting (AVAT), gave yesterday a class to veterinary students in the course of Taurología(Bullfighting sciene) in the auditorium of the veterinary faculty of Caceres, Spain under the title "Veterinary, Animal Welfare Dollhouse." Miguel Ibañez Talegón, Professor of Ethology of the veterinary faculty of theUniversidad Complutense de Madrid, and José Enrique Zaldivar Laguía, veterinary and president of AVAT, presented their work to a large audience. "The behavior of thebull (during bullfights)" and "The suffering of the bull during the bullfight," were the titles of their papers. This is the first time in its four years, that this association ofveterinarians is allowed to explain its position against shows in which the protagonist is the bull, before Veterinary students. Professor Ibáñez made special mention of the reactions that these animals have when subjected to the intense aversive stimuli of bullfighting and Zaldivar explained in detail the physical and metabolic damages and responses that occurto the bulls during these fights. They both agreed on the terrible suffering endured by these animals during the bullfight, belying the study presented in 2007 by other veterinarians, in which bulls are attributed to bull a special capacity to support these responses, minimizing their suffering. Likewise, they stated that “It is an anachronism and a contradiction that the veterinary profession supports and contributes to such events”, granting awards to breeders of fighting bull or to celebrate their Christmas professional celebrations in circuses with animals and made a call the veterinarian official bodies, to take into account such considerations.
