VIDEO: 6 Minutes Of Bulls Destroying People At Tourada A Corda

Tourada à corda is a Portuguese tradition not unlike the Running of the Bulls which sees people running in the streets alongside angry and agitated bulls. To celebrate here’s 6 minutes of non stop demolition by the bulls at Tourada a corda.

The “Tourada à corda” (bullfight-by-rope) is an event held on the Portuguese island of Terceira from April — September, not unlike Spain’s Running of the Bulls. The difference is that in this event the bull is let loose on the streets with a long rope around its neck while 8 men (attempt to) control the bull from the other end of the rope.

You’ll be excused if you don’t feel too bad for the people who get in the bulls’ way:
