Puts some meat on that old bone: "If you mess with the bull you get the horns".

But you must understand, even if the bull wins they still kill the bull. I went to one "bullfight" while in Spain. The poor animals are poked with spears, skewered with small lances and half dead before the "brave" matador faces it. Sometimes they are barely able to stand. Yet, should the bull muster his reserves and injure or kill the matador it still dies.

To my way of thinking the bull should be tended to, healed up and given the run of the cows. This is the type of bull that should be allowed to breed. But I think the "brave" matadors are afraid of facing bulls who have been bred to win.

I have been in the pasture with some full grown bulls before. A cattle prod can be a lot of help.

If He worked where I do , they would make Him watch the video of His mistakes and point out that He alone is at fault for peeing off the bull, then He would have to endure hours of safety coaching and videos before He could go back to work, all by people who never fought a bull. just another day at the office. :lol: .

So castrating and dehorning and force feeding carbohydrates and a steel bolt to the head then butchering and grinding flesh into hamburger is okay ?

Rodeos ain't exactly humane either.

Come on guys....bullfighting is an an ancient tradition.....let the dagos and portgees have their sport.....take away bullfighting and they'll just play/watch soccer......

I agree rodeos are not humane. Ive seen calves and horses killed during rodeo events. However, thats apples and oranges. Tormenting and stabbing an animal until it bleeds to death is a heckuva lot different than popping it in the head with a piston or a .22

You're right.

Bullfighting is much more like bow hunting.

Fred, are you completely sure that you have got the idea of bowhunting down? Aren't you supposed to use something to get those arrows moving faster? Isn't there a better way then pushing the arrows in by hand like is done in bull fighting?

I'm only able to analyze it as pokin' a big critter with a stick and then waiting to see what happens next.
