Matador Gored Fighting A Bull, Now Fights For His Life

Matador Gored Fighting Bull And Now Fights For His LifeTotal Pro Sports – Just like the saying goes.  “If You mess with the bull, you get the horns.”  Israel Lancho learned that the hard way and now, after losing his fight with the bull, he finds himself in critical condition fighting for his life in a Madrid hospital.  Score one point for mother nature.  This can become the new promotional video for PETA.

During a bull fight in Madrid on Wednesday, Israel prepared for his next trick.  What he wasn’t prepared for was what would happen next.  As he moved to dodge the oncoming bull, he was not quick enough and the horn of the giant beast punctured his lower abdomen with an 8-inch hole.  If that isn’t enough to make you reconsider your choice of profession, I don’t know what is.  Although, even soccer has proven to have its moments.

Bullfighting has long been debated regarding the unethical treatment that such animals are put through.  This time it was the human receiving the unethical treatment.  These bulls are often slaughtered or killed for show, but in this case revenge was had.  Shall we say, make that one for the good guys?

Here is the video of the horrific moment.
