  • Description

    MACAO HAD THE FIRST BULLFIGHT IN ITS HISTORY THIS WEEK. LYING JUST OFF THE SOUTH CHINA COAST, AND WELL-KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD FOR ITS GAMBLING CASINOS AND GREYHOUND RACING, IT WAS A UNIQUE SPECTACLE FOR THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO WERE SEEING BULLFIGHTERS IN ACTION FOR THE FIRST TIME.

    THE BULLFIGHTERS, MANY OF THEM FAMOUS, CAME FROM PORTUGAL FOR A TEN-DAY PERFORMANCE IN THE COLONY.

    IN A SHOW WHICH KEPT THE SPECTATORS TENSE AND EXCITED, VARIOUS DAREDEVIL FEATS WERE PERFORMED.

    HOWEVER, ALL DID NOT GO WELL FOR ONE BULLFIGHTER. THE ENRAGED BULL, WITH DARTS HANGING FROM ITS NECK, CHARGED THE MATADOR OUT OF THE RING.

    ALTOGETHER SEVEN BULLFIGHTERS TOOK PART IN THE SHOW. IN PORTUGUESE BULLFIGHTS THE BULL IS NOT KILLED.
