Bulls Brought From Portugal For Moscow Corrida To Be Taken To Reserve

The Moscow government has finally determined the fate of the Portuguese fighting bulls which were brought to Russia for the first-ever corrida. It should have been held in Moscow in September but the Russian Orthodox Church and the municipal authorities protested against it. They regarded corrida as a cruel and worthless show. In early December the bulls will be taken to the research centre of a reserve in the Moscow region, a spokesman for the municipal government said. The Portuguese bulls "are of no cattle-breeding importance and they can be used only for scientific purposes," the spokesman noted.
