Out flanked: Angry bull gores matador in butt during Spanish fight (VIDEO)
Peruvian matador Andres Roca Rey, 19, walked away with only minor injuries, the second time in five months one of his horned opponents got vengeance for centuries of abuse at the hands of the “tradition”.
The 533 kg (1,176lb) toro took the opportunity in Seville’s La Maestranza bullring Saturday, lifting Roca Rey off the ground with his left horn and appearing to penetrate the teen’s bum in a scene that would be right at home in 50 Shades of Grey.
As Roca Rey’s screams echoed around the bullring, other fancily-dressed matadors tried to distract the bull with their colorful capes in the hope of saving young Peruvian from serious injury, or even death.
Astonishingly, Roca Rey was left with only minor injuries and even did a walk around the ring afterwards, with reports suggesting the horn merely grazed his inner thigh.
Although blood can be seen all over Roca Rey’s legs, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) noted it was possibly the bull’s blood as they are usually stabbed in the back before entering the ring.
In November, Roca Rey was also lucky to escape without major injury during a bullfight in the Mexican city of Guadalajara.
He lost two teeth when a bull shoved one of his horns into the teenager’s mouth during the encounter, which would be another appropriate chapter for the sequel novel, 50 Shades of Red.
