Matador David Mora confronts a bull at Las Ventas bullring in Madrid on Tuesday. He and two other bullfighters ended up hospitalized, prompting a historic cancellation.

Bulls score symbolic win in ring

– Spanish bulls have scored a symbolic victory at Madrid’s prestigious Las Ventas ring by injuring three matadors and forcing organizers to call off the bullfight.

The fight, the 12th of the famed San Isidro festival, was stopped late Tuesday after bulls gored two matadors and tossed a third into the air.

Las Ventas said it was the first time in 35 years a fight was stopped because of matador injuries.

The first torero, David Mora, was still being treated in a Madrid hospital Wednesday but was said to be out of danger. The other two bullfighters were expected to be discharged later.

The two bulls were Deslio, a 1,173-pound beast from the El Ventorrillo breeding ranch, and the 1,184-pound Feten of the Los Chospes ranch.
