    Mexico is considered the second most important bastion for bullfighting in the world, with a tradition that dates back more than 500 years to when Spain colonised the country.

    Many people feel passionately about the sport, saying it is part of their culture of heritage.

    With about 9,000 bulls killed in the country each year, however, many Mexicans have questioned whether bullfighting should continue.

    Authorities in the capital, Mexico City, are considering a law to ban the controversial sport.
