Supporters of bullfighting always say the same thing: it is the ancient and noble struggle of man against beast. What they choose to ignore is the fact that the ancient and noble battle has been knobbled from the outset. And when it really comes down to it, one beast can put 40 ‘man’s in hospital – including a ten-year-old boy, because torturing animals is a nice afternoon out for the kids – when the fight is fair.
What it is is… in a bullfight, the bull comes out already with something snagged through its neck to make it crazy. People then spear it with hooks that go into the flesh then stay dangling. Then a bloke on a horse with a big fuck-off spear comes out and drives the spear in so the bull is considerably weakened and bleeding heavily ready for the dolly in the sparkles to come out, tease it with some old bits of schmutter and eventually put it out of its misery by stabbing it with a sword through its spinal column.
If he’s done a lovely job, they will then cut the ears and tail off – the bull is not always dead at this point – and gift them to twatty in tight trousers.
So, isn’t it lovely to see the bull get his own back? Here he is in northern Spain, jumping the barriers and then rampaging through the crowds putting them mo’fos in hospital beds.
He should have cut their fricking ears off while he was at it. See the live action over the jump…
