Running of the Bulls

Program: Running of the Bulls
Please don't contribute to or glamorize Spain's cruel pathetic practice of running these beautiful animals to what is certainly a slow and cruel death! Public television should have more class!! So those of us who know the horror of bullfighting that children watch and cheer that the bullfighter will be victorious hope for the opposite result we continue working to end a practice that is bloody and violent and frankly I question the moral compass of all of you who think bullfighting should continue.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your feedback.
I respect your concern about the cruelty of bullfighting. But after viewing this extraordinary documentary, I got to say, the Bulls came out looking pretty good.  I was more concerned about the sanity of the runners.
This Saturday July 12th is the 4th Annual Highlands Running of the Bulls. This is a run I think we all can get behind.
A benefit for Tennyson Center for Children in Northwest Denver, runners attempt to outrun members of the Rocky Mountain RollerGirls team wielding whiffle ball bats.
It will be a day of celebration for those who are able to escape the onslaught of the Rocky Mountain RollerGirls, and will raise money for Tennyson Center for Children, who's aim is to "work with children, youth, and their families to overcome a variety of life crises, including abuse and neglect."
All the Best,
Joan
