Animal lover Ricky Gervais has added his voice to a campaign to outlaw bullfighting in Spain.
The funnyman, who is a dedicated champion of animal rights, is urging his fans to sign a petition supporting a ban on the barbaric sport in the Catalonia region.
Local politicians are preparing to vote on the proposal next month (Jul10) - and Gervais has joined forces with officials at the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) to lend his weight to their campaign.
In a video posted on YouTube, he says, "WSPA is trying to stop needless acts of cruelty all over the world. The Catalonian government in Spain is on the verge of voting for a ban on bullfighting. Catalonian MPs will be voting on the issue and you can do your bit to help.
"We want them to know that there are thousands of people all around the world who care which way they vote and are hoping to see them put an end to this cruel sport... Please go to the WSPA website and add your name to our petition so that together we can encourage the Catalan parliament to vote in favour of a ban."
