Bull Destined for Bullfights Enjoys a Quiet Life
This big sweetheart is a lover, not a fighter! One of the biggest attractions for tourists in Spain is “la corrida de toros,” or bullfighting. This tradition is such an ingrained cultural artifact in Spain that most people overlook the abusive treatment of the bulls involved in the spectacle. The bulls are prodded and infuriated into a frenzy, and even the horses the bullfighter rides are often drugged and badly treated, all this not to mention the bloody end most bulls in the games often meet. One frenchman set out to prove that these bulls are actually gentle creatures.
Christophe Thomas, a resident of Rennes, France, bought a bull at an auction in France that, in a likely alternative circumstance, would have been shipped off to Spain to be used in the bloody tradition. The bull, named Fodjen, is a certified sweetheart. He enjoys a nice life with his new owner in an open pasture, receiving lots of love and attention. The bull and the man really seem to bring out the best in one another.
