NSFW: Famous Matador Gored To Death By Bull On Live TV

Bull fighting is a highly dangerous and controversial sport. Unfortunately for the animal involved, death is a certainty. For the human ‘Matador,’ (bull fighter) it’s not certain, but death is part of the risk.

Animal cruelty activists around the globe condemn the sport as cruel and unusual punishment, even torture for the animal, but in places like Spain bull fighting is not just a sport.

In the tradition of bull fighting, the animal is typically skewered with spears throughout the display. Eventually bleeding out the bull slows, and toward the end of the dance the matador will draw his sword and deliver a finishing blow.

For obvious reasons this tradition can go badly wrong very often. That was the case in Spain this week, as one of the countries most popular and well known matadors was killed on live television.
