Man gored to death after baiting bull in controversial festival that celebrates taunting animals

A construction worker has died after being gored by a bull he was taunting during a controversial festival. Footage shows the horrific moment the beast charged at Jorge Barrios in an arena in Sincelejo, northern Colombian.

 

 

He was taking part in the traditional “corralejas” event, which celebrates bullfighting and baiting.

The clip shows hundreds of people taunting a few bulls as they waved capes to entice the animals in the arena ring.

Most of the bullfighters managed to dodge the animals as they charged, but Barrios, who had reportedly been drinking on the day of the attack, ended up being gored.

The incensed bull then charged at the people who ran over to help the victim.

The man filming from the stands tastelessly pointed the camera at himself and made a cut-throat gesture as people rushed the victim out of the arena.
