GORED TO DEATH: Victor Barrio

ONE of Spain’s top bullfighters has died after being gored to death during a festival in Teruel in Aragon.

Victor Barrio, 29, was caught off guard and the bull, named Lorenzo, tossed him into a somersault and then gored him in the chest as he lay on the ground.

The bullfighter was rushed to hospital but doctors were unable to save his life.

Barrio’s death was the first matador fatality in Spain for more than 30 years.

  1. The animal defended itself, which proved tragic for the provocateur. Not glorious, brave or heroic, just tragedy brought about by an anachronistic, barbaric tradition.

  2. ole……fantastic…the bull is victorious….or not they would have killed it any way as being an aggressor…when will these barbaric cowards stop this barbaric cowardice act….!!!

    • No woes Dante just a bright and free future. How long do you think Spain can hold on to it’s own identity and culture once it is swallowed by the EU?
