Gored in the Gonads in Madrid

We blogged about a Young American gored by a bull in Salamanca during a Bull Run in February 2015.  You would be forgiven for thinking that the Salamanca blog was one of my GOW Rants and you would be right.  I find Bull Fighting and Bull Running completely abhorrent, but who am I to pour cold water on traditional ‘entertainment’ that has been part of the Spanish culture for hundreds of years, as well as other countries around the world.  If watching several men with sharp weapons, torture and eventually slaughter bulls over a protracted period of time is your bag, then so be it. On Saturday we heard that Banderillero, Marco Galan, was delighting crowds in Madrid when the bull he had just stabbed with a spear, jabbed Marco in his groin with one of his huge horns.  Quite honestly, it sounded like a fair cop to me.  Unfortunately, the bull gored one of Marco’s testicles and he had to have it removed.

We won't show you Marco's testicle being gored, but the bull also had a go at Marco's back, which could have potentially caused a life threatening injury.  But if this is what you chose to do for a living ...
We won’t show you Marco’s testicle being gored, although it is all over the Internet. The bull also had a go at Marco’s back, which could have potentially caused a life threatening injury. But if this is what you chose to do for a living, then these are some of the many risks you have to take.

The bull was finally finished off by the Matador.
