    No.

    It's not wrong.

    It is however, ironic. This was one of the few non-lethal bullfights out there.

    The region this took place is is famous for putting the bull in the ring with unarmed people and basically goading the animal to charge. The show is about agility. People getting the **** out of the way when Ferdinand comes calling.

    The bull is rarely killed.

    Now I want to see this same thing get repeated at one to the shows where they were planning to kill the bull.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    I watched the report on Spanish news yesterday. They showed a few videos of where this has happened before. It seems to be a fairly common occurance. This particular animal weighed 500 kilos according to the report, and apparently has the agility of a cat... a 500 kilo cat with a couple of spears attatched to its head.

    Someone missed a golden opportunity here. If, while everyone else was fleeing madly, one lone man dove headfirst towards the bull with fury in his eyes and a scream of blood and glory, he would have been a hero of men forever and ever.

    better than this is the vid of the bullfighter who got gored in the neck and the horn came out his mouth. (unfortunately he survived.)

    Aleksander is your man ...

    MarcusDBrutus, Aleksander Emelianenko is the man you want:

    "
    It looks like during a Russian game-show called 'Big Races' (which is shot in France), Aleksander Emelianenko participated in a competition with a bull to see if he was more of a 'beast' than an actual beast. Not sure on the exact details of the contest, but from what I understand, it involved a no-rules match that somehow included urine. In the end of the competition, the bull stepped on Aleksander's face and knocked out two of his teeth. From the reports, the studio was literally filled with blood and Alek was rushed to a local French hospital to insert his two teeth which he apparently picked up after the incident. Keep in mind, this is the same guy who hunts bears with knives."

    ... unfortunately, it ended up pretty much as one might expect it would ... mad props anyway ...

    I'm with you on this. It was shown on the BBC and my sympathy was with the Bull. Poor chap. They chopped him up afterwards. Shame.
