It’s not hard to imagine why a bull would be eager to fight back in a bullfighting ceremony. As animal rights activists have pointed out time and again, putting aside the pretenses of romance and tradition, a bull is fighting for its life out there.

In doing so, a bull in southern France named Burp fought off Basque matador Ivan Fandino, killing him in the process.

The bullfighting death was the first one in France since 1921 after Fandino succumbed to puncture wounds in his kidneys, lungs, and heart. He died at the hospital later that day.
