Jack Osbourne Is A Macho Matador On DWTS! Watch HERE!

Talk about FIERCE!!!

This week on DWTS, Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke took a break from ballroom dancing and tackled the paso doble!

However, it wasn't the complicated steps that were giving Jack problems. It was all about the attitude!

During rehearsals, the proud papa said he was having a tough time channeling his inner matador, and he even asked Val Chmerkovskiy for some tips on how to get into the bullfighter mindset!

Well, it looks like the tips paid off as Jack and Cheryl put on a (literally) fiery performance that earned them a score of 25!

Not bad for his first bullfight!!

Ch-ch-check out the spicy dance (above)!

Matt Damon Attends A Bullfight??

Filed under: Matt DamonPETAAnimal CrueltyCow

While on a break from filming in Mexico, Matt Damon was spotted at a bullfight!

He attended the fight at La Monumental bullring stadium in Mexico City with some friends.

Apparently he wasn't screaming for blood, jumping up and down; he was actually seen yawning and talking with friends, though he did applaud the fight a few times.

PETA said:

"Each year, approximately 250,000 bulls die in bullfights, an inaccurate term for events in which there is very little competition between a nimble, sword-wielding matador (Spanish for ‘killer’) and a confused, maimed, psychologically tormented, and physically debilitated animal."

Even though Damon has his own charity Water.org, that helps provide clean water and sanitation to people who need it, he's come under fire from PETA before.

They argue his most recent movie, We Bought A Zoo, sends the message that anyone can take care of exotic and wild animals.

We're sure he'll be hearing from PETA very soon.

Bullfighters Are Having A Cow Over Bull-Killing Ban

Filed under: Animal RightsAnimal Cruelty

Bullfighters in Ecuador

Bullfighters in Ecuador are seeing red over a ballot referendum that, if passed, will ban the traditional killing of bulls at the end of bullfights.

Ecuadorian voters will are voting on a bill that would make it illegal to kill animals for entertainment.

That might be good for the bulls, but matadors like Diego Rivas fear the ban will negatively impact their finances. Beyond that, people say killing the bull is an integral part of the tradition, and eliminating it would be a travesty to the sport.

Members of Ecuador's matador community staged a protest on Wednesday in front of the Carondelet presidential palace in Quito in all their bullfighting regalia — with one important addition: tape over their mouths to demonstrate that they are not being heard.

The President of Ecuador's Union of Bullfighters, believes eliminating the killing of bulls in bullfights would be a death blow to the 97,000 families he estimates make at least some of their income off bullfighting.

Bull Fights Bullfighter!

Filed under: Animal RightsAttack!Animal CrueltyDanger!CrazzzzyCow

In the classic John Hughes film The Breakfast Club, Principal Richard "Dick" Vernon warns troubled student Bender, "Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns."

This guy must have never seen that movie.

A French matador suffered a broken collar bone after being gored during a bullfight in Medellin, Colombia yesterday.

The bull struck after the bullfighter stabbed the charging animal to end the spectacle, but fans got one more surprise when the bull caught the fighter off guard in one last charge before falling over dead.

Check out the video above to see the bullfighter get the horns after pissing off the wrong bull.

Hopefully this video serves as a reminder to some why bullfighting is not only a stupid way to kill an innocent animal, but a stupid way to get yourself killed as well!
