Bullfighter’s return glorified

No Gravatar

A Spanish bullfighter was gored in the face last year by a bull. He lost an eye and has paralysis in one side of his face.

Instead of retiring from the barbaric industry of bullfighting, he choose to return to torture more animals. Instead seeing the light through his one remaining eye, he choose to go back to ring of horror.

In a New York Times article, it is reported that he killed 10 bulls during his training. It’s mentioned in a way one might mention that he wrecked 10 cars training to become a NASCAR driver.

I wish the article made more than a brief mention of how horrible bullfighting is. And I wish it could be reported that his return to the ring was a topic of protest in Spain, as opposed to something to be cheered and glorified.
