Chilling video of Ivan Fandino’s death, gored by bull

The death of famous bullfighter Ivan Fandino was captured on video, and it’s rather disturbing to watch. Fandino appeared to trip on his cloak, and unable to maintain balance, the enraged animal plunged its horn into his lungs. Fandino got to his feet but was battered by the bull a second time before being trampled over as his colleagues rushed in to take the animal’s attention.

The chilling video can be seen above, but what’s not heard are Fandino’s alleged final words, “Hurry up, I’m dying.”

The horrendous incident took place in the town of Mont-de-Marsan, near the Spanish border. Regardless of how you feel about the sport of bullfighting, it’s never pleasant to watch an injury — or in this case, death.

Humane Society International said in a statement: “The matador’s death is a tragedy but for the 1,000 bulls brutally killed in French bullfights every year, every single fight is a tragedy in which they have no chance of escaping a protracted and painful death.

“Bloodsports like this should be consigned to the history books, no-one should lose their life for entertainment, human or animal.”
