Mexico City considers banning bullfights
By Simeon Tegel / The Independent
When the conquistadors brought bullfighting to Mexico more than 500 years ago, few could have foreseen how popular it would become.
Today, the largest bullring in the world can be found in Mexico City, and the country is regarded as second only to Spain for the quality and number of bullfighters and bulls that it produces.
But all that could change today as legislators are set to vote on whether to ban the sport in the Mexican capital.
