Celebrities and Thousands of People Join Forces to Ban Bullfighting in Mexico

A centuries year old tradition may be coming to a halting end thanks to a bunch of celebs and a tens of thousands of bull-loving peeps.

Eugenio Derbez, Marco Antonio Regil and Ruben Albarran are among the more than 85,000 people that have signed a petition to end bullfighting in Baja California, Mexico.

“If we can convince lawmakers that there are thousands of us who oppose this cruel and inhumane practice, we could bring about a historic change,” stated the petition on Change.org.

Manuel Sescosse, president of the National Association of Bull Ranchers, says the sport benefits the region economically, but animal rights activists are not buying it.
