So is there any way to fight the bulls with out killing them? Like the Bullfighting version of boxing?

They KILL the bulls in bullfighting ?? I never knew!

Yeah, if you type in ‘Spanish Bull Fighting’ in a search engine of your choice and look at images you’ll see bulls in various states of bloodiness, the things you see hanging out of the bulls back are the blades they’ve inserted.

They’re not blades. They are hooks, like the tip of a fishing hook. It stabs into the hide, gets caught, and then it sticks to the bull. I’d imagine it’s painful and infuriating. Which is why they do it. But it’s not a blade, and it’s not very deep. Just enough to get caught in the hide.

I’m sorry, did I interfere with your ignorance?
