I agree with the sentiment that the sport is barbaric. I know I would be against it being done in my country. It is up to the people of Mexico and Spain to decide how they wish to treat animals in their own country but I do think it is a bit of a mark against them in the international community.
I think the US is bothered a little more than most countries with these types of things. I guess I am numb to a good bit of it myself. Being raised around a good many small farms, I wasn't shielded from the rough side of animal-human relationships. That is the nicest way that I could say that without getting graphic.
Many countries have blood sports as entertainment. It is just part of their culture. I can respect that.
