In addition to being gored by a bull, I wonder if there are bonus points for being urinated by a bull, kicked in the 'nads by a bull, or the ultimate --- being "buggered" by a bull... Bulls should get together and talk about these possible options, and get on the bonus system... Might as well have some fun prior to getting carved up, right ?

i think most of are for the bull!.
If the intent of the sport is to kill the bull (or is it just to prove how macho one is?), then, by all means, the object of the sport for the bull is to kill the matador.
Yep and i always root for the underbull, i mean underdog. If one of them has to die in the contest then it should be the one that was forced to fight against it's will. Like a street fight started by some punk against an innocent bystander, die punk die!
An elephant in Zimbabwe reportedly trampled a poacher who was attempting to kill the wild animal.
Solomon Manjoro, a suspected poacher, was trampled to death by an elephant in Charara National Park in Gatshe-Gatshe, Kariba, according to the state-run Zimbabwe newspaper The Sunday Mail. Manjoro and his friend Noluck Tafuruka are said to have visited the park between April 19 and 26, armed with two rifles, for the purpose of hunting. The deceased poacher is thought to have tried to shoot the elephant before he was trampled.
Manjoro's remains were found after Tafuruka was arrested on charges of possessing firearms without a license, The Sunday Mail reports. A third man linked to the poaching incident was also arrested.
Although it is unclear how common elephant trampling is, TreeHugger notes that elephants may be purposefully striking back at the threat of poachers: "Perhaps as more of the animals have lost family members to poaching, they've grown more aggressive to those appearing to be a similar threat."

I got stung on the heel by a scorpion while sleeping about a month ago. Most painful 24 hours of my life afterward. Entire body went numb, including my teeth. Foot where I was stung had numbness for 11 days afterward. I am out hunting them down every night now. Eight on Tuesday, six more last night. If PETA is for these creatures then they can kiss my backside.

The story gh linked to is tragic, but it might not be a case of "psycho killer cattle from hell"...
In previous cases where people were trampled by cows in Wiltshire, the victims unfortunately chose to walk their dogs in a cow field, and the dogs apparently spooked the cows who were protecting their calves, resulting in the cows trampling the dog owners.. In the case that gh linked to, the men were also walking their dogs when they were trampled (according to another news article).
In two Wiltshire cases late last year a woman survived but suffered some broken bones after being trampled when her dog scared the cows, and around the same time a woman was trampled to death while also walking her dog in a field of cattle. Maybe it's not the best idea to walk your dog in a field full of cows, especially in Wiltshire...
