Bullfighting aficionados are furious after the popular video sharing portal YouTube banned bloody images of bulls being killed in the ring labeling it "animal abuse".

The online giant closed down channels devoted to Spain's "national fiesta" provoking immediate outrage from fans of the spectacle who declared it amounted to "censorship" and "a lack of respect for a much loved tradition".

good for youtube

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

Bull-fighting is animal abuse ...... pure and simple. Some people may well view it as 'a much loved tradition', but it's a much loved tradition of animal abuse. WELL DONE YouTube!!

The day the bulls are killed with bare hands will be the day it's worth watching.  Until then I'm unimpressed by the "sport".  It's as boring to watch as hunting or fishing.

While I do NOT think that Bullfighting should be allowed (it is animal abuse, just for entertainment)
I do NOT see how Youtube can ban anything that is legal in the country of origin, IF it was illegal then I could understand

If they get away with this then what next, what else will they ban from their site?

Seem's to me that BIG Brother (Youtube) is nothing more than control freaks

I sort of get what you are saying, but it is not just shown in that country once it hits the net.
Anything which is abuse should be banned, whether it is legal in its country of origin or not because youtube is global.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Do you have any examples of what you think YouTube may ban next?

Bull-fighting is such a mind-bogglingly obvious abhorrence, so far off the scale of what is acceptable, that I don't think we need to worry just yet.

And yet they leave c*** - Fights on there no problem. If your removing a video based on animal abuse do it for all not just one! I personally feel youtube have the right to ban what ever they want on there website, after all its there site.

Banning the ability to watch it online is a good step, but it's not going to solve the issue.
Still, well done! As many others have mentioned, I'd like to see all of the other inhumane "sports" banned as well.

Thats wrong and hypocritical. I agree, all animal abuse should be banned.

Here is the funny part (not really funny) but the shortened version of the word cockerel is not allowed, but wonder if they would allow the link to the video of the fighting?
Have seen this on other sites where words are banned but videos are not!!


ps: please do not try and put the video up on here.

Too bad the ancient Romans didn't have our technology, they could have posted videos of their much loved tradition of crucifying people, including Spaniards. Olé !

Youtube have the ability to stop certain countries watching videos from other countries, I have come across it myself on Youtube where it states the video is not available in my country, more than once, dont know if anyone else has had that happen
There is nothing stopping Youtube from doing that for bullfighting, broadcast it on their site in spain but disable it for other countries

That all depends on what the CEO /owner's dislike, it could be anything that they find distasteful or abhor or something that goes against their belief's etc etc etc.......
It is because of them, that they have banned or trying to ban bullfighting on Youtube, and not because it is a bloodthirsty, cruel, sadistic sport/entertainment (which I think it is)

On this site (Unexplained Mysteries) there are certain topic's that the Admin/Mod's might dislike or find distasteful, but they still let those topic's stay on the site, so why cannot a site as big as Youtube do the same and not ban something off their site because they personally do not like it, which has got to be the case, as Vaise said they still allow cockerel fighting etc on there

I did not know that, thankyou for telling me.
I can not see them disabling certain things unless there were enough complaints, but there are certain things like animal cruelty which should not be shown at all, even if it is legal in that country. By allowing it to be shown at all, shows they are not against it.
Some countries still hang people, it does not mean that it should be allowed on the net, no matter what country it is shown in, same goes for animal cruelty, it should not be shown anywhere.
Although they can disable it from being shown in other countries, there is nothing stopping people from forwarding it themselves....not that technical on things like this, so would that be possible or could you tube stop that happening too?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
