Unarmed to Fool Bull
Spain has recently revived a
dangerous form of bullfighting,
according to Collier’s, in which
the m atador is unarm ed and does
not fight, but attem p ts to m ake
the bull believe th a t he is a statu e
as he poses, dressed in white
clothes, on a sm all white pedestal
in the center of the ring.
Out of every 10 bulls engaged,
approxim ately 7 are fooled at the
first glance and walk aw ay, while
the others are not deceived until
they push the statuesque m a ta ­
dor down off the pedestal and see
his body motionless on the ground.
Occasionally, a bull is not duped
at all and the m atad o r has to run
for his life.
