Spanish bulls win symbolic victory, gore 3 matadors at famed San Isidro festival

MADRID (AP) -- Spanish bulls have scored a symbolic victory at Madrid's prestigious Las Ventas ring by injuring three matadors and forcing organizers to call off the bullfight.

The fight, the 12th of the famed San Isidro festival, was stopped late Tuesday after bulls gored two matadors and tossed a third into the air.

Las Ventas said it was the first time in 35 years a fight was stopped at the ring because of matador injuries.

The first torero, David Mora, was still being treated in a Madrid hospital Wednesday, but was said to be out of danger. The other two bullfighters were expected to be discharged later.

The two bulls were "Deslio," a 532-kilogram (1,173-pound) beast from the El Ventorrillo breeding ranch, and the 537-kilogram (1,184-pound) "Feten" of the Los Chospes ranch.

Bullfighting is held up to be this old, noble tradition, and the bullfighters are considered so brave and flamboyantly macho. I guess it's great fun as long as the picador gets to do all the stabbing, but they aren't expected to have it dished back right at them. I wish this happened more often--MAYBE they would finally put an end to this celebration of abuse if the tables are turned more often!!
