Noble art or brutal blood sport? Matador’s death reignites debate

Spanish matador Ivan Fandino died Saturday after being gored during a competition in Mont-de-Marsan, southwest France. While plenty of people mourned Fandino’s death and praised his skill in the bullring, others questioned his risky job and lashed the cruelty of the tradition.
The tragedy occurred during the Aire-sur-l’Adour bullfighting festival when the 36-year-old tripped over his cape and fell to the ground. He was then rammed by the bull, with the animal puncturing his lung with its horn.
Fandino was taken to the hospital but suffered a heart attack in the ambulance and died later in the hospital, according to medical authorities.
