“there’s nothing heroic about torturing an animal for enjoyment”

I don’t mean torturing something for sadistic enjoyment.

I mean facing a huge challenge, to test/demonstrate one’s mettle. I think that is why men fight bulls - to prove their courage.

I get what you meant, and my phrasing was off. I meant “entertainment” instead of enjoyment, but I get your point.

You’re right in your assessment, it just pains me to see innocent animals used for such purposes. It’s a cultural thing though, so it will remain what it will remain.

At least the bulls get a little revenge during the running of the bulls celebrations :)
