I'm not sure why Hemingway like bullfighting, and I'm not sure why I enjoy it either, but it appears to be more fair than deer hunting in that the guy in the arena may be killed by the animal.

I grew up on a farm and still raise some stock, and have been a hunter since I was pretty young. But I do not understand the appeal of bull fighting at all, and I don't have any particular fondness for bulls, either.

From the perspective of the animal, would you rather die quickly and relatively peacefully in the woods, or in an oversized pen surrounded by a yelling mob, stabbed and bleeding in multiple places, and mad as all hell at being tormented? Were I to witness a staged bullfight, I'd be rooting for the bull.
