    VIDEO: Spanish bullfighter Saul Jimenez Fortes gored in the neck (WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO AND IMAGES)


    BY Andy Clayton

    A Spanish matador is lucky to be alive after being gored in the neck by a bull during the San Isidro Fair in Madrid.

    Saul Jimenez Fortes was rushed out of the bullfighting ring and taken to a local hospital after he was brutally gored, first in the stomach and then in the neck.

    Fortes, who was gored by a bull during the same event last year, was reportedly conscious when he was carried out of the ring as fans watched in horror.

    Doctors at the Las Ventas hospital in Madrid, according to Spanish media reports, said the matador suffered a bull horn wound to his lower stomach and another to the neck.

    "Everything is going well, he has no fever, nor has he signs of internal bleeding," a doctor was quoted as saying.

    The bull horn that ripped into Fortes' neck apparently bruised both his carotid artery and jugular vein.

    The veteran matador was facing off against the sixth bull of the day in the annual event when the shocking scene played out.

    I don't feel bad for the dummy, though. If I was already gored once, I would be looking for a new career path. :coffee:

    If the bull gores a matador, they kill it's mother so it can't breed any more bulls that might do it again. If the bull survives the match, it is still butchered and sold on the market the next day. Bull should have ripped his head off, Bull fighting is glorified animal torture at best.

    Glorified? It's just plain animal cruelty. I don't understand why people would want to gather to watch some asshole put spears in an animals neck and make it suffer a long death.

    It goes beyond that. Before what you think is the traditional match, they have an exhibition where they stick lances into the bulls neck. It serves a few purposes, it angers the bull so it puts on a better show, and it also forces the bull to constantly lower its head in what looks like a more aggressive stance. It also makes it so the bull can't swing his head as much and the person has a better chance. It's fucking disgusting. Then people come out and stick little flags on sharpened sticks into it's shoulders to piss it off even further.

    By the time the matador enters the ring, the bull is already half dead and exhausted.

    The Portuguese are a little more sporting. They have the same first round where they weaken the bulls neck with lances, but no so much as for it to be fatal or even permanently harm the animal. Then 8 dudes get into the ring with no protection or weapons and literally wrestle the thing to the ground till it gives up. Then it's escorted out of the ring where it is either butchered in private by a professional, or nurtured back to health and used to stud. Still pretty mean, but at least it's a bit more fair and you have a chance of being a stud after if you perform with "honor".

    o_O what part of "no more" was unclear?!

    Actually, I'm just teasing. This has all been very educational. Thank you for sharing. :)

    Well at least you can rest assured that "Penguin Fighting" is not a "sport".
