'Charging Bull' sculptor says New York's 'Fearless Girl' statue violates his rights
The young girl staring down the huge bull with hands planted on her hips quickly became a tourist magnet, drawing global attention on social media as visitors posed for pictures. In response to petitions with tens of thousands of signatures for the statue to stay longer, mayor Bill de Blasio announced the city permit would be extended for nearly one year. There was a time when Charging Bull was in a position similar to the Fearless Girl — waiting for the city to allow the piece to stay.
The city eventually responded to the public clamoring for the artwork to be allowed to remain in the financial district, steps from Wall Street.

Petition organisers are calling for Spain's Ministry of Culture to ban the show, or force producers to replace the live bull with a statue. The petition reads: 'The inclusion of the animal involves exposure to light and loud sounds, constant transport and unnecessary stress' during the scene it features in and the show. Campaigners also said they suspected the animal was drugged 'to be able to better control the scene, which concerns a 1,kg animal'. However, the theatre has stated the bull takes no painkillers or drugs and has two carers on hand to ensure its well being, The Local reported.
