Where is bullfighting still legal?

Bullfighting is still legal and practiced today in Spain, France, Portugal, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador.

In some cases, the type of bullfighting is not exactly the same as the traditional corrida which ends with the slaying of the bull (in Portugal, for example, fights are now only done on horseback, and the bull is not killed).

The sport has been completely banned in Argentina, Canada, Cuba, Denmark, Italy, and the United Kingdom. 

There are some countries which fall in a gray area, such as the United States, where modifications have been made to Spanish-style bullfighting to avoid injuring the bull.
