    Hmm....the bull is facing deliberate murder in the field, and you call it crazy when it sees a way out and takes it?

    It's a pity, it really is, that he didn't kill more people in the stands.

    I ALWAYS cheer for the bull.

    Oh, I realized the use of the word "crazy" was the article headline. You didn't call it crazy, someone who possibly supports the torture of animals did.

    When the rampage was over, 40 people were injured, including a 10-year-old boy who was sent to intensive care for injuries caused by the bull reportedly falling on him.

    The bull had twice tried to enter the 3,500 person crowd before his successful third attempt.


    Anyone else cheering the bull? Bull fighting is one of the most barbaric forms of entertainment in the world imo.

    Go bull.

    Good lord, we see eye-to-eye on this. Not only can bulls fly, but pigs can now, too. ;-)

    I was in Spain with a group about 8 years ago, and decided to not attend the bull fights. Some went and most said it was an unpleasant experience.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You mean you don't get a big kick out of watching an animal suffer and slowly die? Imagine that ...

    Most were naive to the brutality. They held some sort of romanticized notion of bullfighting until they saw with their own eyes.

    Yeah, I imagine Hemingway probably glossed over the gory aspects.

    We lock people up for making dogs fight. This primitive bloodsport is every bit as cruel.

    I didn't know the bulls actually died from that until recently. I still don't know exactly what happens to the bulls, I thought they just teased them with a red thing and tried to avoid them, but yes, I hate harming and killing animals. My dad's a deer hunter and he said that they have to kill deer for population control, and when winter comes the deer don't have enough food, but he puts food for them(and I guess the other huntters do too, I dunno) so they don't suffer, so I can understand deer hunting...

    Anyway, I saw the video and it looked to me like the bull ran straight for a guy in a red shirt. I wouldn't like to wear red around a bull, I don't think...

    Yes! That was amazing news... nice to see that a lot of Americans were backing a group of locals from the area (the locals actually started this). It is because of them that there was a vote. Glad to see so many being supportive of this group of Spaniards.

    Spain's Catalonia bans bullfighting

    Barcelona, Spain (CNN) -- Catalonia became the first Spanish mainland region to ban bullfighting after its parliament voted Wednesday to outlaw the tradition on animal cruelty grounds.

    And yeah... imagine a bull getting upset about being tortured to death.

    Barbaric indeed.

    I hope Catalonia is only the beginning of the end of this shameful "sport"
