Bullfighting is an evil leftover from the days of the Inquisition. Those who continue to participate in such activities are beginning to receive their payback.

Can't say I feel too sorry for the guy. It's an activity where you are sort of looking for trouble.

Did anybody else notice the animal looking away (about 0:33-0:35)? It looks like something had caught his attention in the distance. What if a fellow Matador had a grudge against this guy and signalled somehow for the animal to turn aggressive? The response of the beast at this point seems kind of odd to me.

Bit far-fetched, but since this is a conspiracy site, thought I'd throw it out there...

I agree we are so fast to judge other people cultures and traditions and spend less time looking at our own. Here is one that many Americans have attended and unknowingly support . The circus. I'm not assuming all of them are doing this but this is defiantly a case where one is. Both can be categorized as being humans entertained at the animals expense .www.toxicjunction.com...

Funny you mention that - it was the first thing that popped into my mind after I finished my last post here. I was even thinking of putting a thread together concerning the abuse at circuses. But, I'm too disgusted by what I found to even be able to approach a thread about those filthy examples of 'entertainment'... I'll have ot leave it up to PETA (as much as I disagree with that group).

What's your opinion on bullfighting though? I'd be curious to hear.

Here's mine - and I'll keep it simple...

Cows, bulls, especially calves are sacrificed every day - in hellish hellhole meat factories - AFTER - a hellish life in dry lot feeding pens, HELL X infinity and 5 days more.

It's horrific. Just horrific.

The rides in cattle-cars, the dumping half dead/crippled cows and calves behind butcher sheds to die horrible slow deaths.
Bestial treatment when attaching pincers to their tender noses, fastening them to pipes sprouting from cement so the cow is 'twitched' (her tail rammed over her back) for artificial insemination... And more and more...

Ok so you get the point.

But fighting bulls?

Those bulls are cared for, pampered, well fed, well groomed and admired.
(For the most part - abuse and neglect equals a crappy showing, etc).

The bulls get a chance to win - and yes, some do.
Because they win the adoration of the crowd, the matador lets them live, etc.
They're put out to stud.
Yes, some do live. A few, but more than those that go into the 'hamburger house' that's for sure.

The bullfight exhibition bulls also have a chance to fight to the death instead of going to the slaughter with no dignity.
Even a chance to take out a few humans before they go to BBQ...

So... What do you think?

peace

So is ATS going to start a Gore area with photos/videos like this? Or is this just an occasional type of post?

Whats this got to do with anything? We don't need another 'Worlds Funniest Animals' or the 'Worst accidents ever seen' channel. Thats for You Tube. ATS is for ...well a little more discerning content.

I've been to the bullfight's on trips to mexico and spain. Something I wanted to see. Leftover from long ago. As a previous poster said, it isn't like the slaughterhouse. The bulls are very well cared for and have a fighting chance. Sometimes the bull wins. But a human on foot with a sword and a cape vs a 3000 lb animal with horns.... The matador is on less than equal ground inmo. His brain is the difference maker, but as far as tools and physical presence he's easily outclassed.

But regardless of what's going on in the ring I don't place the value of the bull over a human life. Nor any animal for that matter.

Honestly? This wasn't karma... now, if you wish to discuss something that most definitely is karma, you can always log onto YouTube and type in (I shudder to even think of it) "Spanish Matador Gored in Groin."

It was in the news a couple of months ago. A Spanish matador came out of retirement or some such nonsense and was doing a bullfight down in Mexico... if you don't want to watch it I understand. It's hard to take. His man bits aren't happy...

I don't personally like bullfighting, I think it's unnecessarily brutal to the animals and in some cases
people too... however, it's a cultural thing that I'm not going to try and "enlighten" anyone on. There are plenty of people in the U.S. that get their rocks off by sport hunting... gunning down otherwise stunning creatures just for the sake of killing... they don't take the meat, the skin, anything... just a picture and the head. I don't particularly think it's evil, but again, not my cup of tea. It's ingrained in some people, just like bullfighting in Spain.

However, that doesn't stop me from laughing hysterically when a deer shows up on YouTube kicking the hell out of a hunter


Karma!

That's why I stick to fishing... with me, it's catch and release or take it home, clean it and have a nice, non-chemically laden dinner. Besides, fish are limited in their karmic retaliation... at most, I would have to suffer through a girlfriend who won't be in the same zipcode as me until I bathe.

Im sure many of you here disagree with bullfighting.

Yes. It's disgusting and cruel. Civilized people don't make sport our of tormenting animals to death.


But, what do you guys think....Was this "karma"?

Yes. I think the guy totally had it coming & deserved it. I'm not sympathetic.

Yeah right, exactly like crown green bowling with grandad


Calling bull fighting a sport is quite obscene IMO.
It's a sad reflection on the sickness of the human condition.

Glad the bulls are getting some payback.

When the crowds are showing up to see the bull fighter die, rather than the bull die, we'll know a corner has been turned, and hopefully, this disgusting practice can be stopped forever and this particular blight on the human soul begin to heal.

Well they sure don't have a problem tormenting them then eating them, wearing their skins, forcing pregnancies to use and kill their offspring...

Hmmm, maybe that would make a difference - if they processed the bull through a Burger King after they were through...

lol

Hmmm... In my opinion cropping a dogs ears and tail, especially a breed known for FIGHTING is absolutely abhorrent.
For ascetics? That poor puppy! Have you heard them cry when their ear are cut, and after having to go around with a plastic guard around their neck, or their ears taped up?
Talk about a blight on a humans soul...



The dog in the above picture, whether you had it done to him as a PUPPY or not? That puppy didn't even have a fighting chance against some maniac with a scalpel.

The bullfighting bull? The one TON plus bull up against a skinny little man wearing tights carrying a cape?

He does.

peace

I agree - ugh, circuses are horrible.

And don't even start me on clowns.

Is there anyone in their right mind who actually likes clowns?
