About time the bulls got some payback :chuckle:

Matador Victor Barrio killed by bull in Spain

A matador has died after being gored by a bull in Spain - the first bullfighter to die in the ring in Spain this century.
Victor Barrio, 29, a professional bullfighter, was killed when the bull's horn pierced his chest.
The fight, in the eastern town of Teruel, was being broadcast live on TV.
Also on Saturday, a 28-year-old man died after being gored by a bull during a bull run through the village of Pedreguer, near Valencia.
The last matador to die in a bullfight in Spain was Jose Cubero, or Yiyo, in 1985.....Cont

"Brutal Cornada" Mata a Torero Victor Barrio en Corrida de Toros en Teruel, España



"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

If only your headline was true and the bulls were ahead, but this goring of a single human is like a pin-prick to an elephant against the monstrous beast of the bull-fighting entertainment industry.

Or, maybe not, if this turns out to be the incident that ends these barbaric practices for good. In that case, this bull should be immortalised.

If you want to prove your manhood, find a way that doesn't involve animal cruelty.

ps. As to the actual score, I don't think anyone has been keeping count of how many bulls have been killed, but it's claimed here there's been 533 matador deaths at least.

Anyone eating meat and "social justice worrying" about bullfighting is a big phat hypocrite.

Those bulls have an excellent life and a horrible last hour of it.
The industrialised meat industry imprisons cattle and gives them a horrible life and a sane last few seconds only to keep the price down.

What is sicker? :yerright:

Try to face such as majestic beast and say again those toreadors are sissies. :facepalm:

The world's populace is more addicted to the products the meat industry provides than it is bull fighting. You've got to start with the smaller tasks before you can move onto the big issues.

Even if the bulls could tell you they loved the challenge, what it does to the human psyche is not worth the money it brings in.

Bullshit excuse. Only vegetarians and people who only eat hunted meat or free-walking animals and dispute the bullfighting are not hypocrite. Anyone who supports the bio-industry has no moral right to criticise the corridas.
You've got to start with the smaller tasks before you can move onto the big issues.

"You've got"? Who is "you"?

And again bullshit. If you are commenting on child labour, but happily buy Nikes and iPhones built by child labour, you're a hypocrite. And you can stop your own support by not buying those products.
Even if the bulls could tell you they loved the challenge, what it does to the human psyche is not worth the money it brings in.

Luckily it's not you who decides that for other people. You are just a poo-picking pickpocket prisoner with an internet connection and an urge to troll.

Yes, and you're just an "everything's been cgi'd" muppet, but you don't see me constantly complaining about it.

As to being hypocritical for eating meat and complaining about animal cruelty for entertainment's sake, if you can't see that one thing needs stopping more than the other, you're a moron as well as a muppet.

BULLFIGHTING: THE FACTS



THE MYTH

It seems hard to believe that in this so-called civilised age, a most vicious and cruel spectacle of blood continues to flourish in Spain and certain other countries. Bullfighting is barbaric and should have been banned long ago, as bear-baiting was. It is difficult to understand how crowds of people will pay money and take pleasure in watching one lone creature - who has never done them any harm — getting hacked to death. How can anyone with an ounce of compassion, cheer and chant olé as a banderilla or lance is thrust into the animal’s pain-racked body?

Bullfighting has a very glorified public image — it is presented as a contest between the brave matador, who boldly risks life and limb to tackle a mad and ferocious beast. The matador is always dressed in a traditional costume of brilliant colours: the bullfight is seen by many as the mysterious ritual between man and beast, which is an integral part of Spanish culture and custom. For this reason, many tourists who visit Spain feel that seeing a bullfight is a necessary part of their holiday, just as tourists visiting Britain go to see the Tower of London.

However, after witnessing the sheer horror of this sickening slaughter, only the most hardened and callous would consider a second visit to the bullring. The purpose of this booklet is to fully explain what the bull has to endure, both during his last hour of life in the ring, and also the other side of the bullfight not commonly known to the vast majority of people: the pre-bullfight treatment.

THE PRE-FIGHT TREATMENT



The bull is not an aggressive animal, and the reason he is angry and attempts to charge at the matador whilst in the bullring is mainly because he has been horrendously abused for the previous two days. In fact, what spectators see is not a normal, healthy bull, but a weakened, half-blinded and mentally destroyed version, whose chances of harming his tormentors is virtually nil. The bull has wet newspapers stuffed into his ears; vaseline is rubbed into his eyes to blur his vision; cotton is stuffed up his nostrils to cut off his respiration and a needle is stuck into his genitals.

Also, a strong caustic solution is rubbed onto his legs which throws him off balance. This also keeps him from lying down on the ground. In addition to this, drugs are administered to pep him up or slow him down, and strong laxatives are added to his feed to further incapacitate him. He is kept in a dark box for a couple of days before he faces the ring: the purpose of this is to disorientate him. When he is let out of the box, he runs desperately towards the light at the end of the tunnel. He thinks that at last his suffering is over and he is being set free — instead, he runs into the bullring to face his killers and a jeering mob.

"THE “FIGHT

Strictly speaking, a bullfight is composed of 3 separate “acts”, and the whole thing is supposed to last for 20 minutes, though in actual fact it varies. The opening of a bullfight begins with a tune being played on a trumpet — the tune is the special, signa lure Rifle which characterises the beginning of the horror. Upon entering the ring, bulls have been known to collapse through exhaustion alter their pre-fight ordeal — they have been dragged to their feet by the bullfighter’s assistants.

The Picadors

The sequence of events begins when the bull faces the picadors — these are the men on horseback, whose purpose it is to exhaust the bull. They cut into his neck muscles with a pica. This is a weapon of about 6-8 inches long, and 2 inches thick. Once it is thrust into the bull it is twisted round and a large, gaping wound appears. The bull then starts bleeding to death.

The Assistant Matadors

After the picador has finished his sordid business, the assistant matadors then get to work with the banderillas (sharp, harpoon-like barbed instruments). These are plunged into the bull’s body, and he may also be taunted by capes. Up to six banderillas may be used. When the banderillas strike the bull stops in his tracks and bellows madly.

The Kill

A trumpet signals the final “act” — in fact, during the whole nightmare, strange, slow tunes are played throughout. It is, of course, during the final act that the bull is killed (and hopefully goes onto a better life). The kill should last 6 minutes, and is done by the main matador. If he has any difficulties (which is an extremely rare occurrence), the others immediately rush in to his aid and finish off the bull.



THE FINAL DEGRADATION

The matador is supposed to sever the artery near the heart with one thrust of the sword — in fact, this never happens. It often takes 2-3 times before the creature is mercifully released by death. By this time, the bull’s lungs and heart will be punctured and he always vomits blood. Miraculously, he sometimes attempts to rise again, and gets up on his knees, only to receive further mutilation at the hands of his tormentors. He finally gives up, goes to his knees and lies down.

Even then, he is not allowed a little dignity to leave this world in peace, his ears and tail are cut off (often when he is fully conscious), and his broken, bleeding body is dragged around the ring by mules, to which he is attached by an apparatus made of wood and chains. Not content with his suffering, which must be too horrible to describe by words, the crowds boo and jeer him. They even throw empty beer cans at him. His body is then taken away to be skinned, and even then he may not be dead when this happens.

HORSES



The bull is not the only animal to suffer in the ring — hundreds of horses die long and agonising deaths as they are gored by the pain-crazed bull. Horses have their ears stuffed with wet newspaper, they are blindfolded and their vocal chords are cut so they are unable to scream in pain. It is not an uncommon occurrence for horses to stumble upon their own entrails after being badly gored. After a horse has been wounded it is led out of the ring, given crude surgery, and sent back in. Horses used in bullrings sweat and tremble from fear — they are forced to return to the ring time and time again. The picador’s horses are generally animals whose working life is over, and which are, therefore, old, infirm and docile. Their reward for serving mankind faithfully is to end their days in the bullrings. They are kept in poor conditions between fights, arid, not surprisingly, their life expectancy is short.

ARGUMENTS IN DEFENCE OF BULLFIGHTING

But it’s part of their culture" is the argument commonly used to defend bullfighting, but this argument is also used to defend female circumcision (genital mutilation). It could also have been used to defend witch-burning, bear-baiting and a multitude of other evils, “Culture” is not a magic word, and simply labeling something as such doesn’t make it right and above criticism. Also, the word “culture” suggests the enhancement and enrichment of people or a society, and watching animals being tortured to death doesn’t fall into this description.



Get your own house in order” is another argument put forward, with reference to our own blood sports such as hunting and (slaughterhouses). Well, there is no reason why we can’t support the Spanish Animal Rights movement as well as fighting animal abuse in our own country. An animal doesn’t regard itself as being Spanish when it is being tortured to death — rather it is a member of the anima[ kingdom being tortured to death by humans. The Animal Rights movement is a worldwide one and should not be restricted by boundaries.

As has been mentioned previously, bullrings are largely sustained by tourists who visit out of curiosity and a misguided belief that if they fail to visit this unique part of Spanish culture, their visit to Spain will not be complete.

The vast majority of tourists are appalled by what happens at a bullfight and leave after they see what happens to the first bull (three separate bulls are killed at bullfights, but spectators are not allowed to leave until the first one has ended).

However, the purchase of their ticket keeps the bullrings open.



It is only a matter of time (hopefully) before this abomination has ended, and bulls are allowed to live their lives in peace.

Yes, it's cruelty indeed.

However, this is even worse as every year 50.000 chickens get Holocausted in New York:
