    In this place, men provoque bulls who try to chase them away and be left alone. The bulls have the tip of their horns cut off, and many times seem half-drugged, to make the job easier for the men. Only by its sheer size and weight the bull can balance the odds a bit on its favour... If you want to see men confronting bulls, maybe the "forcados" fit the description, and even then there are maybe a dozen men to a bull; if you like to watch some snob mounted on a horse (if something goes wrong, the horse is more likely to get hurt than the man) "bullying" a bull until he is so tired and covered with wounds he is taken away to be killed, then have fun... Give one of those sissies a knife a put him alone, on foot, in front of a bull without sawed horns, and you would see him crap his pants and run, instead of showing off and hurting an almost defenseless creature.
