Matador Gored by Bull on Live TV
A spanish matador died this past weekend after being gored to death by a bull on live TV.
Victor Barrio was killed on live TV when the bull's horn struck his chest. Barrio is the first professional bullfighter to die in the ring in over three decades. The 29-year-old bullfighter was thrown into the air by the bull.
The last matador to die during a bullfight was Jose Cubero in 1985. Spain's Prime Minister offered condolences on social media.
More than 130 people, including 33 matadors have been killed by bulls in Spain in the last century. Now, bullfights are legal just a couple of blocks from my apartment in Mexico. Many of my buddies cross the bridge from El Paso, Texas into Mexico to check out this gory sport.
