Madrid - The Spanish government is planning to reduce the bloodshed in bullfights, prohibiting bullfighters from killing the bull in front of spectators in bullrings, the daily El Mundo reported Thursday.
Environment Minister Cristina Narbona told reporters she would try to introduce the controversial reform after the 2008 elections, according to the daily.
Currently, bullfights end with a 'coup de grace' when the bullfighter kills the bull by sticking his sword into the back of its neck. Skillful bullfighters finish the animal with one thrust, but many need to wound the bull several times.
Narbona said she wanted to follow the example of neighbouring Portugal, where the bull is not killed in front of spectators, but taken to a slaughterhouse after the bullfight.
