> well, I don't really know what Spain has to do with this; but to explain, this is what called bullfight on a rope and is a special event is well known in the Azores islands
> there are about 4-5 people usually at the other end of the rope to hold the bull in some degree of control but I didn't see that happening; the bulls horns are blunted to prevent piercing injury
> the point of this is to run and touch the bull and get away; usually that's what happens when the bull is somewhat restrained with the rope
> at the beginning of the video, you'll notice the word "Acores" or Azores, the islands of Portugal; I've seen it live; quite interesting to watch; but I wouldn't try it myself....unlike regular bull fights, the bulls don't get sworded or killed...
