A load of bull

Alexander Bewick is back again - again. This time he writes about bullfighting. Apparently Catalonia is debating banning the corrida from the region, while Madrid is declaring it a Bien de Interés Cultural. In Andalucía, the PP is proposing a law to 'defend our traditions, our culture and our fiesta nacional (another name for the bullfight)'. Bewick also confesses to having 'followed the bulls' in a youthful fantasy regarding Ernest Hemingway. See for yourself.

Short and sweet (or not so sweet for some)... We have the right to shoot any animal harassing or annoying live stock, and I believe that this law also applies in Spain.
So why can´t we shoot those animals that tease and taunt bulls and eventually cause their death through such activities?
