    These gruesome pictures show the moment a matador held aloft a bull's chopped off ears, just minutes after it almost gored her to death.

    Bullfighter Lea Vicens, 30, was seen falling from her horse as the animal charged at her during the Feria de Nimes - an annual festival in southern France.

    The bull then drove its horns into Ms Vicens, bringing gasps from the crowd as the French bullfighter narrowly avoided serious injury.

    The matador was back on her feet moments later and chopped off the bull's ears, holding them up in front of the thousands of people packed inside the arena as blood trickled down her hands.

    Bull's ears and tails are often cut off after bullfights as a grisly trophy to the matador.

    After the bull has died, the presidente - or man running the event - decides if the fighter has earned the right to take home an ear.

    If the bullfighter puts on a particularly good show, they can take home both ears and even the creature's tail.

    Over the day, Ms Vicens took a total of three ears, while her fighting partner Diego Ventura was awarded four ears and a tail.

    The five-day celebration in Nimes, where Ms Vicens was born, sees bullfights take place twice daily, with revellers gathering at bars and nightclubs after the controversial fights.

    Ms Vicens has a reputation for her energetic and exciting performances, with spectators paying up to €104 (£75) for a seat at her fights.

    In 2012, the matador won plaudits in France for cutting 60 ears and 10 tails off bulls.

    The bulls die an honorable death. It's what their bred to do. Would you rather be slaughtered for food or have a chance to gore some Bullfighter's spleen and put them in the hospital for a month.

    I'm not a peta person but witnessing a bull fight in Madrid was the most disgusting and upsetting thing I have ever witnessed. It was on a highschool trip and the whole class had to attend. Picture a small confused and injured animal wondering around in a dazed being speared by 5 people on horseback and taunted by a matador

    Bullfighting is sadistic torture.
    But you are right. Only people who dont eat beef have a right to complain here. The rest are hypocrites.

    I hunt, fish & eat meat but that's ridiculous bullshit. Same category as trophy hunting lions etc. People watching it are fucked in the head also.

    In the early sixties WOR in New York used to show Bullfights from Mexico every Saturday Night. They were on either before or after the Joe Franklin show.

    There is no question that bullfighting is not the part of the culture that it had been a half-century ago. As late as the 1950s and 1960s, bullfights were broadcast on American TV. Matadors were regarded as superstars—much in the same way the public regards NFL quarterbacks and NASCAR drivers today. Indeed, Americans and others with just a vague knowledge of bullfighting wonder what it’s all about. Many of them do give in to temptation, though, and finally make their way to Spain, Mexico, or one of the other taurine countries to find out for themselves. In Olé!, Hal Marcovitz reports a typical encounter with some new fans of the corrida:

    As many others have states I'm for the bull. This is such a shitty and outdated tradition.

    The top Matadors in Spain earn over $5 million a year for working about 2-3 hours a week over 30-40 Sundays. The sport is waining in popularity among the people in Spain but some very powerful and influential people keep it going.
