Rex Ryan flagged by PETA for bull session in Spain
Animal-rights group PETA is horning into Jets coach Rex Ryan’s fun.
Michelle Cho, PETA’S associate director, sent Ryan a letter Thursday asking him to refrain from future bull runs and clued him in on the abuse the animals endure — including death by sword.
“I implore you … to pledge never again to participate in this cruel event,” Cho wrote.
Ryan, 50, helped kick off the annual San Fermin Festival by joining thousands of thrill-seekers running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, on Sunday and Monday.
“An aspect of the cruel spectacle that you likely didn’t witness is that prior to runs, bulls are held in corrals, where the scared and confused animals are jabbed with electric prods and sharp sticks in order to rile them,” Cho wrote.
The Jets declined to comment.
