    Ivan Fandino, a Basque bullfighter from Spain, has died in the bullfighting ring, the second in a year, he was a matador for 12 years but he tripped on his cape.

    Its very sad that this has happened, should the sport be banned as a result? Should bull fighting be banned anyway? I'm not sure I agree with the treatment of animals, and now I'm also worried about the people who do it.

    Or, is it an integral part of Spanish culture? I think I'm on the side that it should be banned, it seems old fashioned.

    It shouldn't be banned, they know the risks of their sport.
