That kind of experience can really leave a bad taste in your mouth.

The stupid ********* deserved it. If you fight an animal, expect them to fight back.

Events like this will actually help perpetuate the "sport". This is why its popular. The chance for severe or even fatal injury (to the human).

Good for the bull. :)

Note, I don't have much sympathy for those who participate in high risk sports/activities.

I don't have any sympathy with those who abuse animals for 'sport' or 'pleasure'.

One more vote for the four-legged foe!

(And no, I don't need to watch it.)

It's like the car crashes in NASCAR - the only moment you really want to watch, but you don't want to admit it.

Wow, I'm glad to hear that he will recover. That said, I find bullfighting to be barbaric.

Agree with you. It's barbaric but then I don't want to judge knowing that the meat I eat doesn't come from happy animals either. In this case I hope he will be fine but stop this "sport".

Oh, and that's the only reason I watch NASCAR, for the crashes. :eek:

Well it wasn't an accident. The bull did it on purpose.

The matador fell and the bulls horn penetrated below the chin through the tongue. The lower jaw is shattered, the upper broken. He needed 6 hrs surgery. No vital organs are damaged but the recovery will be very slow.

There's an easy way to fix that.

Stop eating meat.

End animal enslavement.

They don't comment on the fate of the bull. Usually they let them live IIRC.

The bulls name is opiparo. Maybe google knows.....

Not at all. That's even better than a groin shot. Good bull!

Damn, I wonder how painful it was having a horn going up your jaw like that. :(

That sucks! I think I heard once that if a bull "wins", he gets to live.

I really don't wish anyone anything bad. But in this case hopefully it was as painful as the unnecessary pain he was causing to that animal.

Not necessarily winning, per se. But a bull that performs excellently will occasionally live on, mainly so he can be used for breeding.

The weird thing for me when people talk about bull fighting and how horrible it is, is that they have no problem eating beef whose source is likely animals caged up eating processed crap in quite possibly inhumane conditions, whereas the bulls used in bullfighting truly live the king's life. They are fed the best food possible, free ranged, have plenty of space, treated as prize animals, and (for the aforementioned "winning" bulls) have plenty of women. Those that die though are eaten, not just wasted away. The cuts of meat from them is considered the top cuts money can buy.

I feel sorry for the guys family but not for him. I don't take pity in people who throw spears at poor scared animals for "entertainment". Its just cruel and completely unnecessary. The animal is not being killed for food or anything like that so sorry, but its completely wrong.

**** bull"fighting".

Yes, it is being killed for eating. Rather dramatically so, but as I mentioned, due to the immaculate conditions they're raised in, it's the best meat you can get, especially the tail.

Whoever photoshopped that should put some blood in. Maybe make the bull black.

From the article: "Sein Manager fürchtet nun psychische Folgen - hat sein Schützling künftig Angst vor Bullen?"
Translated: "His manager fears the possible psychological impact - will the protege be afraid of bulls in the future?"

Let's hope so, I say!
