Selfie Stick: Man Records Own Bull Goring Death With Cell Phone Camera
Look, we've been over this before -- bullfighting is cruel and wrong, and if you support it, then you deserve what you get. Dozens of people have died from being gored or trampled during bull running events in Spain in the past 100 years, but none more ironically than the most recent victim.
It happened at a bull run in Villaseca de la Sagra, in the Toledo region of Spain, where an unidentified man was recording himself on his cell phone running with the bulls toward a large bull ring. But just as he entered the stadium, a bull came from behind and gored him in the neck. And I really can't say that I'm broken up about it, seeing that they were planning to do to the bull exactly what the bull did to this idiot. Daily Mail:
He was taken to a nearby hospital but pronounced dead on Sunday, prompting the town's mayor to urge revellers to take care when attending such events.
"This sends shivers down our spine... we organise these events as a tradition, so that people can enjoy them, but these things happen. Bulls are dangerous animals and when there are a lot of people some don't pay attention. You have to have your wits about you."
In 2010 another man was killed in a run in the Spanish town. Fifteen people have been killed while running in Pamplona, the home of the country's most famous festival, since 1911.
The man was a native of a nearby village, according to reports. When the latest item on your bucket list becomes the final item, it's good to have it recorded for posterity.
