Bull Gores Spanish Matador Through The Face
Spanish Bullfighter Undergoes Surgery After Being Gored Through Jaw And Eye In Front Of Spectators | World News | Sky News
A Spanish bullfighter is recovering from surgery after he was gored through the jaw and eye in front of horrified spectators.
Television images showed the moment when the bull's left horn ripped into Juan Jose Padilla's lower jaw to emerge beside his protruding eyeball.
Padilla was pinned to the ground by the 508kg (1,120lb) animal and was only saved when the bull was distracted by bullring assistants in the city of Zaragoza.
The footage shows the 39-year-old getting up from the ring with blood gushing from his face saying: "I can't see, I can't see anything."
The matador suffered eye, bone, muscle and skin damage and has undergone a five-hour operation at a nearby hospital."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.

I really enjoyed the bull fights when I lived in Madrid.

Yep. I have zero sympathy for the bullfighter. That's the cost of doing business. To turn a phrase, some days you get the bull- some days the bull gets you."If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton

The bull was fighting for his life. In his position I'd've done the same thing.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely

Good way to keep your face off a bull's horn is to leave the f^@king bull alone.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
