When it comes to bulls meeting an untimely and torturous end in the arena, Ricky Gervais is sickened.

The comedian has teamed up with the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) to call for an end to the cruel practice of bullfighting, and urge tourists to stop supporting such brutality on their travels.

“Sometimes the worst kind of cruelty is done in the name of entertainment. It sickens me to know that people still pay money to see an animal tortured to death. Cultural heritage is no excuse for inflicting such pain on a frightened and confused animal,” Gervais says in a new PSA for the org.

“My first love was nature and wildlife, and, in particular, animals,” he added in an interview. “I think animals are all unconditionally perfect, and beautiful. Animals really matter to me, and WSPA is trying to stop needless acts of animal cruelty all over the world. One of their campaigns is against bullfighting. It sickens me to know that in this day and age, people are still paying money to see an animal suffering in such a horrific way.”

The new campaign by WSPA comes as the Catalonian Government in Spain is preparing to make a historic vote on a proposal to ban bullfighting. Check out Gervais’s PSA — and the sign the petition here.
