The Bull Stops Here

According to the Huffington Post, the famous Spanish matador, Julio Aparicio was impaled through the bottom of the throat in a horrific goring. The injury left him in critical condition.

"[The horn] went though the tongue and penetrated the roof of the mouth, fracturing the jawbone," one of the medics who worked on Aparicio told AFP news in Madrid."

Warning Extremely Graphic

I bring you this story to highlight my general rules about animals:

1. Don't mess with animals. There's no reason why you need to mess around with an animal.
2. Don't torture, scare, injure, kill, mutilate an animal for entertainment.
3. There are only a few reason why you need to kill an animal.
A) The animal is going to hurt you or your family
B) The animal is food.
C) The animal is threatening the life of your livestock
D) The animal is crucial for the progression of medical research.
4. If there is a God, God did not put animals on this earth for your person sadistic entertainment.
5. Karma's a bitch and so is Mother Nature.

Pretty simple really.
