The yout’ is recovering from a bout of senseless gun violence in a Hispanic section of … Spain? Oh, wait, and it wasn’t gun violence. He actually got injured running with the bulls in Ciudad Rodrigo.
Thing is, they call it running with the bulls, but it really needs to be running well ahead of the bulls. Or, well, the bulls get their licks in, and you wind up like this guy.
A 20-year-old American man who was badly gored during a bull-running festival is out of intensive care and improving, a spokesman for the Clinic Hospital in western Salamanca said Monday.
The hospital spokesman identified the man as Benjamin Miller and said he was out of danger and not likely to have to undergo any further operations. He spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with hospital rules.
However, Tom Eppes, a spokesman for the University of Mississippi, confirmed Monday that Benjamin Milley, originally from Marietta, Georgia, and a sophomore at the school, is the injured man.
For some people, “sophomoric” isn’t just a word. It’s a way of life.
The man suffered several wounds, including a 40-cm (16-inch) goring in the thigh, when he was caught by a fighting bull during a festival in the nearby town of Ciudad Rodrigo on Saturday.
Images showed the 20-year-old being repeatedly tossed by the bull and in obvious pain at being gored and pushed along the ground. Helpers eventually managed to pull him up from the street to safety.
More images of the bull having his way with this poor fellow after the jump. No real blood, though.
“Uh-oh. This is probably gonna hurt.”
Is it just us, or does that picture look as if the bull has carefully considered Mr Millet/Miller/Milley’s actions under the criteria of the Ancient and Honorable Darwin Society, and has elected to remove the gentleman from the gene pool, specifically by sterilizing him on horn’s point?
Mess with the bull, get the horns.
