Although not yet formally forbidden by law, the Spanish bullfight tradition has been in steady decline and the subject of plenty of controversy. So much so that many bullrings had to close as they were not economically viable anymore. Especially the younger generations in Spain are strongly opposed to the bullfights which are -rightly so- seen as a form of animal cruelty.
Some regions in Spain (such as Catalonia) organised self-imposed bans on bullfighting, which the Spanish federal government subsequently overturned. In the Canary Islands, bullfighting is completely banned. Other regions in Spain see heated debates over the last few years as to either outlaw bullfighting or strengthen the rules at the very least.
