CAS visits adoption horse Don JamieWednesday, October 11st 2017
On October 10 CAS International travelled to Belgium to visit our adoption horse Don Jamie. He is so sweet and stalwart! For us, this was a very beautiful and emotional moment, since Don Jamie has gone through a lot. In Spain he was used as a horse during rejoneos (a type of bullfight from Portugal). During the rejoneo the bullfighter fights the bull from horseback. The bullfighter needs to get very close to the bull, resulting in a high risk for the horse. It happens often that a horse gets injured during a rejoneo, and sometimes the animal even dies.

Protest against running of the bulls of Pamplona in AmsterdamThursday, July 6th 2017
Just a day before the start of the running of the bulls in Pamplona, a protest against the cruel runs was held in the capital of The Netherlands: Amsterdam. During eight days, every morning a bullrun with 6 bulls will take place in Pamplona. The bullruns are seen as innocent entertainment, bus this is far from true: the bulls run to the bullring, where they will be killed in a bullfight on the same day.
