    They were showing that on Fox this morning.

    I'm a meat eater.
    I have had livestock and dealt with livestock off and on all my life.
    The men in my family are hunters.
    I've participated in rodeos, been a rodeo princess (a really long time ago) and participate in the Round Up almost every year.

    And I appreciate the whole culture thing of bullfighting, and understand that they honor the bull and all that hogwash...

    But...I'm sorry, I feel sorry for the bulls. I know they're bad tempered. I know they have a high pain tolerance. But I think it's sad, and I feel for them.

    Did you see that bull fly through the air? He was airborn, traveling horizontally AND vertically. Like he had springs in his feet. Unreal. But I see his mouth open and I think, he's distressed, poor thing.

    Always strange when there is a violent or dangerous sporting event and everyone gets all, that was so surprising a fan was injured. The bull still lost. Seems like it should have gained its freedom.

    Don't they usually allow the bulls who kill the toreadors to live?

    As a kid when we went on vacation to Spain (go ahead and make the Michelle Obama jokes now), and as a part of exploring the culture we went to a bull fight. It was the single most disgusting thing I have seen in my life, and that includes watching a man bleed out on the sidewalk after cracking his skull open in a motorcycle accident. Bull fights are not just cruel, they are down right sadistic. The matadors cause as much possible pain to the bull before they finish it off. In many fights the bull will be stabbed and or slashed as many as 20-30 times before they kill it. At the bull fight I attended, the bull had 12 small daggers embedded in its body before the speared it in the throat.

    So to the bull, I say good for you. Good for at least putting some fear of god into those sick sadistic fucks!

    I went to a cock fight once. It was sort of fascinating..there was a ticketbooth, and an old garage that turned into a ring and bleachers...but when they were done, everything hid away and a car went in there, you couldn't tell..it was trippy. They even had sentries to look out for state cops.

    But I just couldn't watch the birds kill each other. I watched a little, but it just sort of goes on and on, and blech.
