Matador gets what's coming to him....OUCH!!!

Normally I'd hate to see somebody get injured like this but the barbaric nature of bull fighting makes my reaction to this story more of a, meh *shrugs*....

MADRID (AP) — One of Spain's top matadors was seriously injured in Mexico when a 1,100-pound (500-kilogram) bull gored him in the groin and hoisted him into the air, causing major blood loss, his manager said Sunday.

Jose Tomas lost up to eight liters (17 pints) of blood after being gored Saturday by a beast named Navegante in the Mexican city of Aguascalientes.

The bull's horn penetrated 4 inches (10 centimeters) into Tomas' groin and punctured a vein and an artery.

I'm not a big animal rights guy by any stretch but, when you make sport out of brutally spearing an animal slowly to death, I root for the bull to gore the matador and will certainly not lose any sleep over this "athlete" getting gored almost to death. I mean seriously, what kind of animal-torturing savage to you have to be to not root for the bull?

Poor Bastard. He only fights el Toro so he can get the senioritas.

You should post the photo of the Dean in the Breakfast Club warning Bender what happens if you mess with the bull.

Ignorance can be a thing of bliss in your case it is a thing simply of ignorance. In Spain the majority of bulls are castrated and live their entire lives as beasts of burden until they can no longer carry the load expected of them and they will die.
The Toros that meets his death in the Corrida has had between 6 to 8 years of complete freedom, he has been well fed and well taken care of though he has been hardly exposed to humans. Half an hour of entering the bull ring he will leave it dead. The Question is which would you prefer 6 to 8 years of complete freedom and then death or a life time dying?zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

How articulate can your response be. I noticed you evaded my question so I will repeat it. What would you prefer 6 to 8 years of absolute freedom and the best of food and care with the certainty of a swift death thereafter or being castrated and living a life as a beast of burden hauling loads that are based on what the owner wants rather than its potential and finally dying when it is of no further use with a bullet to its head?
