Lucky he didn't get killed. By the way, did he shart his pants (series of photos at link)?

American youth seriously gored by bull in Spain

Quote:
An American youth is recovering in the intensive-care unit of a hospital in western Salamanca after being savagely gored during a bullfighting festival celebrating Carnival, officials said Sunday.

Surgeon Enrique Crespo said he was called to operate on 20-year-old Benjamin Miller from Georgia, who had been gored and tossed by a large fighting bull on Saturday, the first day of nearby Ciudad Rodrigo's "Carnaval del Toro."

"It's not the worst injury I've seen, but it's the biggest goring wound I've ever had to operate on," Crespo told The Associated Press.

I'm okay Mom. Just got rear ended by a Taurus when I wasn't expecting it. These European drivers can be really aggressive.

LMFAO!!!

Not that this kid was a matador, but I think bullfighting should be outlawed worldwide.

For these unsuspecting bulls to be raised by humans only to be forced to fight until they die in agony should only be stories told from the dark ages. It has no place in modern day. There is no outcome but prolonged suffering and eventual death of the bulls.

How is this a sport? It is in the same category as dog and **** (rooster)-fighting IMO. Just the fact that people get enjoyment out of watching this is beyond me and disgusting. May every matador get gored! Well deserved payback!

My experience tells me that it is a rare person at that age who isn't more youth than adult. When I was that age, I was invincible.
