American Tourists who are visiting the village of Rodilhan on October 27 will see a side of France that the French government would rather not have them see. There, they can view the dirty little secret that passes as culture. That secret is bullfighting. Those who think bullfighting is illegal in France will be almost right. However, there is an exception. French anti bullfighting laws are lifted because slaughtering bulls in the bull ring is considered part of the area’s culture.
