See Shocking and Amazing Videos Of Bullfights
Bullfights are always amazing and even shocking, but sometimes bullfights go wrong and instead of being the entertainment, the bull turns into terror and attacks the matador or, in the worst cases, even the spectators in the crowd. Let’s have a look at some at some of the most interesting turns of events in the famous, but somewhat horrific bullfights.
When watching a bullfight, we can’t help but feel a bit angry for what happens to the poor bull just for the amusement of humans. The animal goes trough a great ordeal before being slayed and for what? A litle bit of adrenaline rush for those who stay in the crowd and take part of an old tradition…
Well, traditions should be changed if they are bad or cruel, and bullfighting, is more like cruelty towards animals rather than fun and games… That being said, those of us who feel bad when watching a matador stick a special type of sward into the bull, can’t help but feel some sort of joy when the bull fights back, and the matadors gets what’s coming to him.
Unfortunately, sometimes the raging bull ends up hurting the matador, or even killing him. Let’s watch some of the most shocking videos from the traditional bullfights:
Veteran matador, Fernando Cruz has been a well renown bullfighter, having killed a large number of bulls in his career, but apparently, all of the killings finally got to him. There is an old saying that goes like this: “You mess with the bull, you get the horns”, well, at his most recent corrida, after being tortured for a very long time, the bull had the last laugh and, unfortunately, Cruz was pierced by the animal’s horns, suffering severe injuries to the abdomen and hips.
