I refer to the article which appeared in the Agenda section of the Sunday Morning Post, on November 28, headlined 'Killing time at cruelty park'.

Angered by programmes

I AM deeply disturbed with the very positive way in which bullfighting was portrayed by two prime time programmes, Focus on Focus, on TVB Jade and Hong Kong Today, on ATV Home, the first day of Chinese New Year, February 19. Both programmes screened between 8pm and 9pm.

I am extremely annoyed that they made bullfighting out to be good fun and a happy event.

Cruelty must be stopped

HAVING read the recent complaint letters about the cruel treatment of children being trained for Peking opera in China, I am totally amazed and disappointed at the training method used.

What also surprised me is that the trainers would inadvertently expose their cruel behaviour on local TV, which led to the complaints.

Totally against cruel show

I FELT disgust when I saw the picture and read the accompanying report headlined 'Mainland organisers hope to bring bullfights to territory' (South China Morning Post, January 2).

I quote: 'Chinese bullfighting is between two or more animals - a symbol of hard work and bravery'.

Fur coats a symbol of shame

MR Raymond Young sees the ''sentiment against fur'' as ''infringing on the freedom of those who choose to wear'' it (Post, January 30). Is it not rather the case that the facts about fur are disturbing the conscience of the wearers, who are beginning to feel uncomfortable? It is cruel to inflict on animals the shock and pain of leg-hold traps.
