REGARDING your article (SA, May 7), rather than joining in the cruelty, fundraising filmmaker Graeme Willetts could make a greater impact by documenting the bloody deaths of the bulls at the end of the festivities.

Mr Willetts says he's in fear for his life, but the bulls are guaranteed to lose theirs.

Each day during Pamplona's Festival of San Fermin, bulls are whipped and terrorised into running down streets crowded with masses of inebriated people brandishing sticks.

They slip on the road, often breaking horns or injuring legs. The exhausted, confused bulls are then killed one by one, stabbed to death in the bullring.

Anyone participating in this barbaric spectacle should hang their heads in shame.

W Wright.
