Let this video be another reminder of the dire consequences that taunting an angry bull can have.
The shocking footage, courtesy of Live Leak, shows the moment bullfighter Marcial Rodriguez was smashed in the testicles by the animal during a show in Alacante, Spain.
Yeah, be warned, this footage really isn’t for the faint of heart (or the weak of stomach)!
The video shows how Rodriguez – aka. ‘El Maricon’ – was knocked off his horse by the bull, which then proceeded to headbutt the bullfighter in his nether regions and carry him round the arena atop his horn, a vivid lesson to all those in the audience.
Rodriguez suffered (get ready to wince, guys), a 35cm cut to his scrotum and shredded some of his abductor muscles. He was also treated for a dislocated right shoulder after the incident.
Still, despite how brutal this footage is, it’s hard to feel too much sympathy for a guy engaged in such a cruel sport. There’ll be many viewers who’ll say he got what was coming to him…
