Is it just me or does it appear that the bull is looking at/recognizing someone behind/near the camera operator right before the goring?
Not trying to be overtly conspiratorial, but at first glance I could swear the bull was reading some sort of unseen communication from someone behind and to the left of the camera.
You definitely see the bull's attention shift for a brief moment.
Animal trainer perhaps?
That coincidence just struck me as somewhat uncanny.
ART AND CULTURE
The Bullfighting Industry claims
’Bullfighting is an art of universal character, represented by painters, musicians, sculptors and writers: Goya, Sorolla, Picasso, Orson Welles, Góngora, Quevedo, Benavente, Lorca, Machado, Alberti, Vargas Llosa, Hemingway and Ortega and Gasset. It is “The World’s most cultural ‘fiesta’”.’
The facts are:
Bullfighting takes place in only nine countries around the world. A considerable number of countries have banned bullfighting by law, e.g. Argentina, Canada, Cuba, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. There are even certain regions within the bullfighting countries that have abolished bullfighting; e.g. The Canary Islands in Spain, and most of France.
- ‘Matador’ with a Radio Stops Wired Bull Modified Behaviour in Animals the Subject of Brain Study By John A. Osmundsen New York Times 1965
Dr Jose Delgado, the scientist, pressed a button on a small radio transmitter in his hand and the bull braked to a halt. Then he pressed another button on the transmitter, and the bull obediently turned to the right and trotted away.
The bull was obeying commands in his brain that were being called forth by electrical stimulation – by the radio signals – of certain regions in which the fine wires had been painlessly implanted the day before.

That is what the guy deserved for not killing the bull before it happened. These 'accidents' should occur more so that the 'fun' for 'fighting' the bull has become considered dangerous and no fun at all and bullfighting gets abandoned.
Great picture tho....do I see a tooth flying between the sand in the air in the picture?

I wonder who here doesn't have triple digits....i'd say it's the guy who loves to see another fellow human getting attacked and nearly by a stupid animal.
And i say as long as people enjoy seeing other people getting hurt and killed by stupid animals, is the reason why we don't evolve and we will never be one race united.
