Although bull baiting was a cruel
pastime, it was also a fultllllng of the
law. for formerly no butcher was al
lowed to offer for sale the flesh of any
bull thut had not been baited The
goading of the animal In a fury whs
supposed to hare some Influence ou the
flesh In a similar belief the flesh of a
hunted bare was thought to be superior
In flavor to that of oue that had been
shot, and a present of "a bunted bare''
was considered to be a special compli
ment. In the records of the corpora
tlou of Leicester England, the follow
ing order appears: "At a common hull.
teiJ on Thursday before St. Simon and
Bt. Jude, U'J7, 'no butcher to kill a bull
till baited.'" At Winchester It was or
dered (thirtieth Henry VIII) "that from
hensfortn ther sbal be no bulstake set
before any mayor's dore to bayle any
bull, but oDlle at the bull-ringe within
the salde cytle."
