Spain Invents New Style of Bull Fight

Very different than traditional bullfighting, bull dallying is a lot more fun and doesn’t involve killing the bull at the end.

People in San Sebastian, a small town in central Spain, have come up with a way of having fun and keeping the bull as a part of their ancient tradition. Instead of torturing and finally killing the animal to show off their matador skills, the brave Spaniards simply taunts the bull and try to dodge its attacks.

That’s it, no swords, no blood, no animal cruelty, just pure guts and, they say, a lot of fun. I have to say I like bull dallying a lot better than old fashioned bullfighting and I just wish they had thought about this sooner.

    Now this is something that I could really get into. Man vs. Beast with the torture and death. Well played.

    This is a genuine step up, not perfect but man… my hat is off to the New Bullfighters.

    San Sebastian (Donostia) is in the Basque Country (Euskadi) not in the Central Spain and it has 186.122 inhabitants. And this kind of bullfighting is done in lots of regions of Spain…
