El Bloody Torreador – Bulfighting gone bad

Whether you like it or not – agree with it or despise it – bullfighting exists in Spain and is an important part of their history and culture.

The femoral artery runs through the femoral triangle and then by the adductor, finishing when crosses the hiatus of the adductor! It’s the only blood vessel that comes out of the pelvis to the lower extremity. Bull one – man zero.

Now let’s see some blood:

Bullfighting has a very glorified public image — it is presented as a contest between the brave matador, who boldly risks life and limb to tackle a mad and ferocious beast. The matador is always dressed in a traditional costume of brilliant colours: the bullfight is seen by many as the mysterious ritual between man and beast, which is an integral part of Spanish culture and custom. For this reason, many tourists who visit Spain feel that seeing a bullfight is a necessary part of their holiday, just as tourists visiting Britain go to see the Tower of London.

However, after witnessing the sheer horror of this sickening slaughter, only the most hardened and callous would consider a second visit to the bullring.
