12-Year-Old Grabs Bull By The Horns; Injured (Video)

12-Year-Old Grabs Bull By The HornsAs a 12-year-old boy, I think all I wanted to do was ride my bike without the training wheels and start small fires.  This 12-year-old French-Mexican boy named Michel “Michelito” Lagravere, the youngest to perform in Mexico City’s main bullfighting ring, killed a nearly-900 pound bull!

He wasn’t as successful on his second attempt, though, as he stumbled over his own training wheels and got knocked around like a rag doll by a 848 pound bull. This little dude was lucky to escape a gruesome goring, and suffer only minor injuries, but you have to wonder if this will bring up questions about this kid’s eligibility due to his age.

I understand children are becoming more and more talented at younger and younger ages, but c’mon now. A 12-year-old killing bulls? His parents should be having him start with ant farms and have him move up accordingly as he gets older and more mature. Or maybe have him start off as the rodeo clown, but what do I know? I was a pussy when I was a kid.
