The Mayor of Medellin, Federico Gutiérrez, highlighted through a video on his social network that there will be no bullfighting season in the city in 2019.
"From Medellin we have been working for animal welfare and we will continue to do so," said the mayor.
Similarly, he explained that it was the operator of the La Macarena Entertainment Center who desisted from renting the scene for that event. In addition, he rejected the incentive to take the children to an event where there is "animal use".
