Late last week, a matador was seriously injured by a charging bull during a competition in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. According to Saturday’s publication of the Mirror U.K.., the matador who bore the literal brunt of the angry bull’s wrath was 26-year-old Sergio Flores.
Flores was impaled by the bull’s horn during a tournament on Friday – the matador was dragged around the ring after the bull’s horn impaled him beneath his arm. Flores was tossed into the air and shaken violently before being released from the bull’s horn.
The injuries from the huge animal are significant – so much so that Flores’ survival remains in question. Animal welfare advocates have been less than sympathetic to the matador’s injuries, in light of the brutal nature of this blood-lust “sport.”
