Cruelty to Bulls

April 27, 1986

" . . . A rider grabs a small running bull by its tail and attempts to flip the animal over. Points are assigned for various maneuvers and the type of fall inflicted on the bull. . . ."

Such went the wording of the article on "Charro--Thrills of South-of-the-Border Rodeo Come to San Diego" (April 14). I immediately thought of the injuries and fright of a bull pulled by its tail to flip it over. I was sickened.

The Times did a disservice to its more civilized readers by depicting as "sport" and "entertainment" such primitive and barbaric acts of cruelty on terrified animals.
