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?
