PETITIONS - against the Bull runs in Florida USA!

As thousands of people fight against the age old tradition of "bull running" in Spain, Rob Dickens of The Great Bull Run, LLC is starting the tradition in USA. 
The first bull run is to take place in Florida on Aug 24.
Sadly on their Facebook page, they already have 52,000+ fans, which goes to prove that when people are given permission to torture an animal in ANY country there is always plenty of takers that seem happy to do so! 
The bulls are hugely stressed during this ordeal, some die of heat exhaustion or heart attack. 

Many break bones slipping on concrete, as they believe they are running for their lives, which i guess they pretty much well are :( 

Please sign the two petitions...

Please visit their Facebook page, and tell them what you think...

Please also email the organisers to tell them what you think of their money spinning venture: info@thegreatbullrun.com
