I remember going to a bull fight on a hot day in Spain. After about 10 bulls died leaving pools of blood on the ground, a bull charged in and stopped at some blood, sniffed, did a 180 and tried to climb over the gate. Yikes! Who knew bulls were so smart?
It's ashame that bulls have more brains than some people.

Gee, Uh,... maybe "blunt force trauma"?

Maybe they should send Mr. "GRIM", the Lehigh County Coroner over there to figure it all out.

Go Bull, Go Bull, Go Bull.
Bulls are abused treated like dirt, so some idiot can go for a ride. The article said he was 6th in money for the year at about $1500. He lost his life for that.

Rodeo bulls are bred specifically for the sport and are given excellent care. They are treated better than most cattle, and only have to work for up to 8 seconds at a time. I don't call that abuse.
Bull riding is a dangerous sport for cowboys, not bulls. This young man lost his life pursuing his goals. There is no shame in that.

Dear Barbara,
Any animal that is bred for the sole purpose of being stuck in a pen, ropes wrapped around their nuts and pulled tight, so some idiot can go for an 8 second ride, is abuse!
And if this guys goal in life was to ride bulls and make $1500 a year, to rank 6th than he truly was an idiot. Ones life goals should be a little more productive.

Are you opposed to eating meat? If you want to see abuse, visit a factory farm.
You know nothing about bucking bulls. The flank strap is not wrapped around the genitals. If you want to learn something, visit this page:

Top bull riders can earn a living at it, but no one starts at the top. Who are you to tell someone how he should choose to live? Maybe we should also discourage all the boys who want to grow up and be football players, hockey players or boxers. You can get beat up pretty bad in those sports also.

First of all the flank strap isn't tied around there nuts common sense. And have respect for the man that just went to be with the lord. One shouldnt judge there productivity by their opinions. Im a bullrider true enough maybe even an idiot at times lol but Gods given me the strength and courage to use it towards this as he has everyone else and it should be appreciated. God bless you.

Well, well, well....a genuine cowboy, eh? I beg to differ with you. He rode a dangerous animal and paid the ultimate price. He needs not be glorified for that.

There is also no need to vilify him. According to your logic, Chris Reeves shouldn't have expected any sympathy either. Riding horses at top speed over jumps that don't collapse is an extremely dangerous sport also.

You are correct - Mr. Reeves does not get my sympathy. It was quite unfortunate but there are MANY sports which are dangerous and there is a price that goes along with that. Barbara - I have read MANY of your posts and your slants/angles on various topics are QUITE silly.

So then, do you only respect people who participate in safe sports like bowling and ping pong? The people who participate in dangerous sports are aware of the danger, and they minimize it and accept it. Why is that a problem for you?

And I'm curious as to what you find "silly" about my viewpoint. I could say the same about you, but I understand that not everyone thinks alike. I present additional information on topics I am knowledgeable on, so that someone might reconsider their position.

First off, I didn't know that I "needed" to respect people who chose dangerous sports. You want to hang-glide -- then do it. Don't expect sympathy when you crash, though. Bullfighters sometimes get hurt but what do they expect to happen when you mess with an angry bull ?
Personally, I think your posts are nothing more than vain attempts to "stir up" things that aren't there. I am sure you don't agree but that is the beauty of free speech.

I didn't say you "needed" to do anything. But, I did say that there is NO need to vilify someone because he died from a dangerous sport. If you have no sympathy, then the decent thing to do is to keep your unkind comments to yourself. That bull rider never did anything to you.
BTW, I wholeheartedly agree with free speech, and you are completely mistaken about why I am here.

Yo Barbara, I'm not so sure ping pong is very safe. Have you seen "Balls of Fury"?

Nope. I'm afraid to ask. Did someone swallow a ping pong ball and asphyxiate?

They don't kill the bulls they ride? The bulls usually hurt the cowboys that ride them.
Unlike Spain your life is a microcosm of what the bull goes thru in Spain.

Take a close at the next bull riding you see and look at the strap wrapped around the bulls balls. Thats just to make the bull buck harder and throw the rider off. I gotta admire anyone that has guts enough to get on a 1500 lb bull.

The most famous bull in Texas was bought for a song. His name was Bodacious. No one ever rode him for more than a few seconds. Now he is peacefully out in pasture making more little bulls.

In Spain they look at it like it's a sport? After they get done cutting all the bulls neck muscles the Matador comes out and try's to thrust a sword thru the bulls spine and down into his heart. Then you sit there watching the bull spit blood all over the ground until the Matador cuts his spine with another killing tool and cuts his ear off.

They don't show Spains bullfighting sport on TV anymore? I always used to cheer for the bull to kill the Matador.
it is dangerous

I remember mounting my wife and saying "you feel just like your sister" and then tried to hold on for 8 seconds. I thought I was going to die too...it is a very dangerous sport. Try it at home.
