Roca Rey wrestles himself free of the horn and falls to the ground, with the bleeding bull backing away as the fighter covers his head with his hands.
While these horrific pictures appear to show the bull’s horn goring Roca Rey through the buttocks, he was able to walk away with minor injuries.
It is believed that the bull’s horn grazed the matador’s thigh, but miraculously avoided more delicate areas as he rode on top of the animal’s head.
The blood seen on Roca Rey is thought to be that of the bull’s, rather than his own. Bulls are routinely stabbed in the back and shoulders before entering the ring to make them more angry but also to ensure they are weaker by the time they face a matador.
The shaken fighter took a victory lap after the mauling and was applauded by the thousands in the crowd, including the former king of Spain, Juan Carlos.3303071a00000578-0-image-a-9_1460244357272The shaken fighter took a victory lap after the mauling and was applauded by the thousands in the crowd, including the former king of Spain, Juan Carlos.
