THE letters (LT, April 12) from Mrs L Jackson informed us regarding the horror and cruelty of bullfighting and to be encouraged by the European Parliament and EU members is incomprehensible.

I wholeheartedly condemn this barbaric bloodsport. It is doubtful there is one country in the world that doesn't practise cruelty to animals in some form or another in the name of entertainment.

The senseless and cheap displays show an absence of compassion and dignity in people. Bloodsports must be banned.
