Eleven Year Old Matador Kills Six Bulls

January 26, 2009

Mexico (ChattahBox) – An 11-year-old matador has caused a great deal of controversy after he killed six calves, in a bull ring, in Merida.  Story and video below:

Michelito Lagravere had previously won the right in court, after animal and child right activists tried to shut the show down. The boy’s father showed the judge a number of licenses in Michelito’s name, which the judge ruled was enough for the show to continue.

“Michelito has fought bulls since he was six years old and he’s never had a serious accident,” Michel Lagravere, once a bullfighter in France, told the court.

The bullfight led to the death of six calves, between the ages of one and two.

“I’m happy to have achieved this great victory,” Michelito told reporters after the fight.
