LOMILLOS-PEREZ, Juan; ALONSO-DE LA VARGA, Marta  y  GAUDIOSO-LACASA, Vicente. Fighting bull fall-syndrome evolution in the last 25 years. Abanico vet [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.1, pp.80-90. ISSN 2448-6132.

There have been registered 2,225 events of falling syndrome in fighting bulls of 3 to 5 years old since 1991 in different bullrings of 1rst and 2nd category, this study was carried out observing the methodology and software by de Alonso et al. (1995a). The present work started with 99.56% of the individuals that showed falls during 1991-1993, with serious problems for the 17.16% of these animals (falls-type 4, 5 and 6) improving the present situation (2014-2016) with a 79.82% of individuals that manifested the syndrome and which only 8.23% experienced the fall-type-4. The manifestation of falls increases during the bullfight, being the milder forms (falls-type 1 and 2) the most common claudication recorded, mainly during the “Third of Muleta” (red cloth draped over a short stick) generated by the significant increase of its duration. At the same time, it is observed a gradual decrease of the most critical forms of fall, becoming almost non-existent fall-type 5 and 6 in recent years. All of this has been achieved thanks to an improvement in genetic selection and feeding, along with the implementation of the animal's pre-fight physical preparation through standardized training.
