Spanish bullfighter badly injured *GRAPHIC*

Quote:
Madrid - The Spanish bullfighter Julio Aparicio was severely gored by the bull in the bullring of Las Ventas, Madrid. Aparicio received a bull-horn through the neck and is in serious condition. DigitalJournal.com provides the graphic video (viewer discretion).
The bullfighter Julio Aparicio Díaz, from Seville, was gored today by the first bull of the afternoon, in a shocking scene followed by thousands of people attending the Corrida de la Feria de San Isidro, at the Las Ventas Bullring in Madrid. La Feria de San Isidro is the most important event of the year in the world of bullfighting.
(See the video above for the graphic attack)
The bull, named Opíparo, gored the matador and stuck a horn through his neck. The horn pierced the jaw and went out through the mouth of the torero (bullfighter), a disturbing image that was captured live by photographers and cameramen. (For pictures/video see El País, in Spanish)
The bullfighter was transferred from the operating room of Las Ventas Bullring to a hospital in Madrid and, according to doctors, his condition is "very serious".
Aparicio, 41, is the son of a famous bullfighter of the same name, and grandson of Julián Aparicio, who was also involved in bullfighting, however not as a matador.

Las Ventas is the most famous bullring in Madrid. It has a seating capacity of 25,000 and is regarded as the home of bullfighting in Spain. Bullfighting is practiced in Spain, Portugal, in certain areas of southern France and some countries in Latin América (Perú, Colombia). The spectacle is widely criticized by animal rights activists who consider it as a cruel or barbaric sport, in which the bull suffers severe stress and a slow, painful death. Supporters of the activity, however, defend it as a deeply ingrained tradition that is an integral part of their national culture. At a regular bullfight event 6 bull are killed, 2 of them, by sword.

El Toro is not fucking around here.

I have no sympathy for a man that stands in an arena with a bull. The whole thing is a dance of death. I don't have a problem with it really, as I eat steak, but I don't feel sorry for Los Matadores that get fucked up or killed by El Toro.

God...that's a horribly scary thing to see. Not many things make me flinch, and that was one of them.

But they still killed the bull.

Bad sports, it won fair & square.

He's actually pretty damn lucky the bull didn't whip it's head back or to the side. He'd be exactly one jaw less had that happened.

Re: Spanish bullfighter badly injured *GRAPHIC*

I don't blame the bull for doing that; I'd probably do it too if I was that agitated bull.

But he is very lucky to have survived.

I'm glad he survived, but honestly they have it coming. I don't feel bad when the bull gets one up over the matador.

Bull > Spanish Shithead

The guy had it coming. He was abusing an enraged bull. He was playing with death and death was what he got.
