The Portuguese bloodless bullfight concentrates on agility, horsemanship and a type of dangerous playfulness. In this final stage, eight brave forcados demonstrate their extraordinary courage by allowing the bull to charge straight at them, as they stand in a line, then overwhelming the animal simply by force of numbers. It is called "pega de cara".

A neat series. Are you saying the fight is bloodless for the bull? Are the sticks on his back in some sort of padding instead of in his flesh? If so, I am happy for the bull! Thanks.
