Spanish Matador Israel Lancho Gored Horrifically by Bull (Video)

May 30, 2009

(ChattahBox) — A bad day at work when your a matador is just something you do not want to have. Spanish matador Israel Lancho had one of the worst of days getting  gored by a bull in Madrid on Wednesday straight on in the stomach. The Daily Mail reports that the 30-year-old Lancho is in critical condition and likely to be in the intensive care unit of a Madrid hospital for several days but is expected to survive. Lancho reportedly has an eight-inch wound in his abdominal area, but the bull’s horn missed his heart. The incident took place at the San Isidro’s fair in Las Ventas bullring. The disturbing and very graphic video is below (viewer discretion is advised).  Recent polls indicate that less than 30% of Spanish citizens favor bullfighting, reflecting an overall trend that animals should be treated more humanely.

    lovely photo this made my day, serves him right the evil little sadist, hope he suffers.
    the sooner this barbarity is banned the better, for the sake of the bulls, not the cowardly prancing matador.

    too bad the bull didn’t kill him. serves him right. “you play with the bull, your going to get the horns”

    Bull fighting has to be one of the cruelest, most barbaric “sports” left on the planet, I’d like to see it put the other way around. Let’s get Lancho out their without sords and see how he does against the bull. even with sords he still got his ass kicked. I’ll always cheer for the bull against these cowards.

    YES ONE FOR THE BULL! I hate seeing this those poor bulls keep going until the last sword is finally thrusted. How horrific and sad. Serves the b*&^%$#@ right! Shame it wasnt gore for each sword. Yet, the peace of inhumane garbage will live to do this again, while our dear friend the bull will no long be around to live another day. Where is PETA when you need them? This is a travesty and should be stopped, what is wrong with these othe countries. You have on the otherside of the continent people using live dogs and cats as sharp bait. WHY??? MAKES ME SICK!
