"I stayed and watched the first bullfight to see what the men did: They stick the big sword into the animal's neck and the animal goes down," she says. "And then they take a knife to make a final killing - to finish the animal. But in between, [the bulls] will fight for their lives."
Axelsson says she watched the bullfighters stick the young animal with the sword. "So at the time when I went in, the bull was trying to fight again. He was getting up," she says.
"He didn't want to die at all," she adds.
Axelsson went into the ring slowly and as she tried to raise her sign, a man caught her.
"I don't know what they said and thank god I don't know Spanish, because I'm sure he didn't say nice things," she says. "But the man held me very strong and he pushed me and grabbed me very hard. And I had to wait for the police. The men were furious. There were so many people around me."
