Colombia’s Mayors MAY NOT Ban Bullfighting

Colombia’s Constitutional Court ruled Tuesday that mayors are not allowed to ban bullfights in their cities.

In its ruling, the court specified that informal bullfights held outside permanent arenas — like the popular “carrolejas” — may be banned, but that traditional bullfighting falls within the law and that “no mayor … may put himself above the law.”

The ruling is a blow for Bogota Mayor Gustavo Petro who refused to grant licenses to organizers of bullfights in the capital and said “there will not be a single peso spent on this type of event.”

While supported by animal rights activists, Petro’s anti-bullfighting stance was rejected by bullfighters and bullfight organizers who consider the spectacle part of Colombia’s cultural heritage.
