Many, many animals bleed from the nose when under physical duress; it's common for animals that breathe only through the nose (bovines, equines, etc. etc.).

As the photographer said, no one hurt the bull; unlike bullfighting, it was not stabbed various times with swords, goaded towards an armed opponent, had its ear chopped off for a trophy or been killed at the end of a bloody battle. If teased, many male animals will charge, even domestic ones.

The picture is lovely, and I'm glad it isn't from a bullfight.

You're very welcome.  I am absolutely crazy about animals, and I hate to see them injured, so it infuriates me that people set this on the same level as bull fighting.

I will!

I like the picture and the description of it. I'm gald this isn't a bullfight and I'm glad you condemn animal cruelty (I remember your FB post about it). ^^ I guess I don't agree totally with that course either but I'm feeling glad the bull isn't abused in the arena by some stupid and cruel toreros... ;) I like the movement and the details of the sand and dust that are thrown into the air by the bull's foot. ^^

Well people are entitled to their own opinions. And i agree with anyone who says animals should not be abused or tortured for fun. ...but many just comment without thinking or even taking their time to really see what it is about ;)

thank you for your comment :)
