Provence - 2009

***
I want to thank everyone for the comments and judgments and clarify some things: As some users have pointed out, this is not a bullfight ('corrida') But a special event, not a bloody bullfight where the bull is not killed but there are several guys on the inside of the arena that need to mow a tuft on the head of the bull. In this case one of the guys fell and the bull has overcome, fortunately no one was hurt, not even the bull:) ... was at least as long as the internal imn the arena. Fortunately, this event is not like the bullfights in Andalusia where the bulls are subjected to real torture, and finally they are killed ...
