Idiot Tries To Outsmart Bull, Is Gored, Tossed Like Salad (Video)
Down in the comments section of the Costa Rica Times, where we found this story, is the typical defense of these types of bull festivals, in which local rubes get into a ring and taunt 1,000-pound animals. It's "part of their culture" and "makes them who they are."
Yes, in this case punctured, sad little men.
It's the Toros a la Tica in Costa Rica, which is sort of a cross between the Running of the Bulls and a rodeo. This event differs from bullfighting, however, in that the bulls are almost never harmed -- it's the humans who are in the most danger. As it should be.
Prime (beef) example:
The unfortunate lout who was tossed like a dog toy is Luis Salas Contreras, "better known in the bullring as 'San Martin' ", according to the Costa Rica Star. As you can see, he kneeled before the bull, and as the animal charged, tried to lay flat to avoid the horns. This ploy is obviously well known to bulls, and it failed miserably.
The man was taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery for a shoulder wound and a perforated lung. The last line of the story notes that Contreras "is the sole breadwinner of his family, who are asking for prayers." This is the second time that Conteras has been injured at a bull event, notes the Star.
Why do innocent animals in Hispanic countries have to be continually plagued by idiots? Taunting cattle for thrills and winding up in intensive care is no way to go through life, son.
