[url=Spanish Bullfighter Gored To Death Spanish Bullfighter Gored To Death BY: MAINLAND POSTED ON: JUNE 18, 2017 VIEW: 2618 Spanish Bullfighter Gored To Death The bullfighter Iván Fandiño has died after being gored in a ring in France, becoming the second Spanish matador to be killed in less than 12 months after the death of Víctor Barrio last July. Entertaining a crowd Aire-sur-l’Adour, southwestern France, on Saturday, Fandiño tripped on his cape and fell to the floor, allowing the bull he was fighting to gore him savagely in his right flank. The Basque bullfighter from Orduña near Bilbao was rushed out of the arena by his fellow bullfighters and underwent an emergency procedure in the bullring’s surgery before being put in ambulance bound for a nearby hospital. “Hurry up, I’m dying,” are reported to have been the 36-year-old bullfighter’s last words in the ambulance. “I have no words; I can’t believe it,” said Juan del Álamo, the bullfighter who eventually killed the animal that had gored Fandiño. “He was in a lot of pain from the goring, but nobody expected it to end up like this. None of us understand how it could have happened; it was all so fast. The bull knocked him down with its hindquarters and he fell face down,” Mr Del Álamo told television cameras. The fatal goring of Víctor Barrio last July in Teruel, Spain, led to controversy as some animal rights supporters expressed their joy at his death on social networks. Barrio was the first Spanish bullfighter to have been killed in action since 1985. According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Fandiño had to be reanimated after suffering a heart attack while in the bullring’s surgery. A second heart attack reportedly ended his life in the ambulance.]Spanish Bullfighter Gored To Death Spanish Bullfighter Gored To Death BY: MAINLAND POSTED ON: JUNE 18, 2017 VIEW: 2618 Spanish Bullfighter Gored To Death The bullfighter Iván Fandiño has died after being gored in a ring in France, becoming the second Spanish matador to be killed in less than 12 months after the death of Víctor Barrio last July.

I know what you mean Goldie. All the times I have been to different parts of Spain it has always been a venue that I have given a miss to. It's not my kind of sport.

It's never appealed to me, even when I was in Spain.

I wrote this a few years ago

Matador Sam

wakes weeks in Bolton were alus in June
When t' factories and t' shops all shut down
Wi' t' wind blowin' cold and t' rain lashin' ard
On t' stray dogs as were alus around

 
But this year were different for Sam and his wife
And for t' kids an' all ' they were fain
'Cos they'd saved-up their money since  last Christmas gone
And flown off for a fortneet in Spain
 
T' Costa Brava were grand at this time of the year
And t' sun shone from morning till neet
They just lied onta t' beach in their cossies
And let th' ocean wash sand o'er their feet
 
Now Sam 'e were chapel and didn't take a drink
But they'd got in wi' some folks from Chorley
Who'd insisted that Sam shared a bottle of wine
And Sam 'e were tempted '- sorely !
 
So off to t' Bodega strolled Sam in the sun
A red 'ankie tied tight round 'is 'ead
A red towel tied loose round 'is shoulders
And 'is knee - length shorts ' aye they were red  !
 
Sam pushed open t' door of t' Bodega
And 'e looked all around and about
And there were 'is new friends from Chorley
Suppin' wine from a jug wi' a spout
 
T' bar were crammed fair full of Spaniards
There weren't a spare inch on the floor
'Cos today were the day of the bullfight
At the local Corrida ' next door  !
 
His chums shouted  "Sam come and join us"
And they shouted to t' waiter  "More wine"  !!
And it wern't very long before Sam were firm friends
Wi' Bacchus  the god of the vine
 
Suddenly t' bar started to empty
All that wine 'ad robbed Sam of his sense
'Cos 'e followed t' crowd into t' Corrida
'E thought they were all goin' to t' gents  !!
 
T' sunlight hit Sam right between th' eyes
And 'e felt his knees start to give way
Then 'ead over 'eels 'e tumbled down t' steps
And the Spaniards all shouted  "Ole"  !!
 
'E got to 'is feet then 'e stumbled again
And t' crowd really thought it were grand
Sam felt 'is legs fail as he fell over t' rail
And 'e landed in t' bullring in t' sand
 
Now t' bull's name were Oswald and scared though 'e was
At the fate -  surely 'is  before night
'E walked straight up to Sam an' 'e looked 'im in th' eye
But Sam were in no mood for a fight
 
'E shoved both of 'is 'ands in 'is pockets
And 'e smiled and felt pleased as punch
When 'e pulled out a pair of black puddin's
As 'is wife had packed-up for 'is lunch
 
Oswald stood snortin' and gruntin'
And diggin' 'is 'ooves in the sand
So Sam offered 'im one o' t' black puddin's
'E 'eld it right out in 'is 'and
 
Oswald smelled it then licked it then swallowed it whole
'E were fain of some food I dare say
'Cos 'eed 'ad a bit of an 'eadache
And 'e 'adn't felt like eatin' all day
 
Oswald soon realised as Sam meant 'im no 'arm
And their thoughts were both on t' same track
So 'e lowered 'is 'ead and wi' one mighty leap
Sam landed astride Oswald's back
 
The bull walked round t' ring at a slow steady pace
In the scorchin' 'ot  heat of the day
Sam took off 'is towel and wafted 'is face
And the Spaniards all shouted   - " Ole" !!
 
T' crowd all jumped up and they clapped and they cheered
And then all of 'em started to shout
And Sam scratched 'is 'ead in bewilderment like
'E couldn't see what all t' fuss were about
 
Well they gave t' bull as a present to Matador Sam
For t' best sport they'd all 'ad in years
But t' purists among 'em well they weren't best pleased
'Cos t' matadors usually only get th' ears
 
And now down in Bolton just off t' Chorley road
When your down there you'll probably spy
Oswald and Sam sat together in t'park
Sharin' black puddin' and cow - heel pie !!

Hi guys

At certain festivals they put a bull in the centre of the village.  The villagers take turns in stabbing the bull, it takes hours to die. This is in very remote villages. Horrible sight.  It then gets cooked and eaten.

Thankfully  the younger generation are starting to come around to animal cruelty and there is a huge campaign to abolish both activities. Most parts of Spain have abolished bull fighting but there are still the hard liners.

I am quite meek but I will get very stroppy if I see animal cruelty. I confronted the lead huntsman in our area in Vale of Glamorgan once. He was so high up on his horse. He said foxes are vermin.  I said just like you. He was about to raise his whip to me. I said I know your name if you touch me I will report your for assault and past misdemeanors. 

A story for another time smile

Ah ... that's the one I was thinking of Goldie.

Is that when they run the bulls through the streets?
In some ways that's worse than a bullfight in a ring... though I thought France and Spain had stopped that.
And us here in the UK can't say we've totally got rid of fox hunting either .. and never will as too many favour it's return.
I've always thought those who find it entertaining hunting animals, including these big game hunters on safaris on African reservations are sick in the head.

No sags, it is any festival they may have religious or otherwise. Only in older more traditional parts of Spain 

The poor bull is tied to a post and it is stabbed over many hours. Believe you me I found it hard to watchm sickening  in  fact but did.  

Some parts have banned it but there are still small enclaves.

There was a mass petition recently, many signed.

Horrible and not sad at all the bull fighter had his chips, probably a quicker death.

I don't like bullfighting - but not to the extent I welcome a participants death.


I think we should take a leaf out of a certain politicians book and negotiate with the association of bullfighters to persuade them that what they are doing is cruel. If that fails to work we should organise a mass march on parliament to protest that the government cares more about bulls that it does about hard working people. giggle
