Dark world-Shearing of the beasts

Held every year in the village of Sabucedo, Spain “La Rapa Das Bestas“, as the Spanish call it, is a 400-year-old festival where horses that are caught in the hills are rounded up and guided into an arena of sorts called the Corral of Sabucedo, where they are sheared and branded.

Last year’s festival was held on July 5 and, as you can see, it’s very very brutal. They say it is for the preservation of old traditions and customs but truly believe this “festival” should be banned. Look at what they are doing to the poor animals, they jump on them, grab them by whatever they can and try to immobilize them to cut their tales and tag them. This is medieval stuff!
