Barely days after 19-year-old Andres Roca Rey, 19 was impaled on a bull’s horn, experienced bullfighter, Julian Lopez, 33, has suffered the same fate in the same bullring as Roca Rey. A bull pierced the matador, known as El Juli, with its right horn, forcing him to the ground in La Maestranza bullring.
According to Spanish media reports, Lopez was taken to hospital with a wound measuring 15 centimetres. Photographs show how he was lifted into the air as the bull launched the attack in front of shocked spectators. Blood can be seen on his clothing as he was examined at the side of the ring by medical staff. Lopez’s fame is legendary in the bullfighting world, he became the youngest ever professional bullfighter at the tender age of just 15.
Looks like the bulls are fighting back and they have a defined strategy.
