Video shows horrifying moment bullfighter is gored to death at summer festival - but bosses WON'T cancel event

This is the chilling moment a joyous crowd enjoying a bullfighting show were left traumatised after ANOTHER participant was killed by an animal.
The bull claimed the life of a fourth Spaniard to have died during an annual summer festival in just three days.

Miguel Ruiz Perez was struck in the abdomen after slipping as he took part in an exhibition involving athletes and bulls.

But since the video emerged, comedian and animal rights activist Ricky Gervails has slammed the sport- adding that the bull had every right to defend itself.
The 29-year-old was attacked by the baby bull after losing his balance and falling over as he tried to dodge the animal as part of the show.
He was horned in the stomach while trapped against wooden fencing around the bull-ring as he tried to reach safety.

The incident occurred in Lerin in Navarra, northern Spain just before 8pm last night.
He was pronounced dead after being taken by air ambulance to a hospital in nearby Pamplona.
Local authorities however are yet to decide whether or not to suspend the week-long town festival, which was into its third day when Miguel was attacked.
A YOU TUBE video of the incident showed colleagues lifting him up in their arms and running with him to an unmanned ambulance parked at the entrance to the bull-ring before desperately calling out for paramedics to arrive.

The tragedy took the number of gore victims during Spanish summer festivals over the weekend to 
Jose Alberto Penas, a local councillor in Traspinedo, Valladolid, bled to death after being gored during a San-Fermin-style bull run in nearby Penafiel on Saturday morning.
He was cornered after bumping into another man and losing his balance when the animal suddenly changed direction and charged runners behind it.
An unnamed 32-year-old from Valencia died around 8pm on Friday in Museros, just north of Valencia on Spain’s east coast.
Shocking video footage posted on YouTube showed him being horned in the back as he tried to reach safety through a gap in metal railings erected around the area where bulls are set free as part of the town’s annual festivities.

He was caught in a bottle-neck of people trying to squeeze through the narrow gap as the bull charged - and tossed up in the air like a rag doll before being dumped on the ground.
The animal - its blood-stained right horn clearly visible in the video footage - then turned and ran back up the cul-de-sac towards other revellers trying to get its attention.
Just after midnight on Friday, lottery seller Rafael Minano died in hospital in Murcia 140 miles south after a bull severed his femoral artery during a packed run in the nearby town of Blanca.
Medics said he also suffered multiple chest injuries, abdominal wounds and two heart attacks after being caught by the bull’s horns as he tried to escape over a wooden fence, dragged to the ground, and gored repeatedly.
Eight people are now known to have died in July and August after being gored by bulls during festivals across Spain.

Most of the deaths have occurred during bull runs or encierros, similar to those that take place every year at the San Fermin festival in Pamplona.
Four have occurred in the Valencian Community, formed by the eastern provinces of Castellon, Valencia and Alicante, in the past month and a half alone.
An 89-year died in August in Gata de Gorgos, Alicante. A 44-year-old French tourist died in Pedreguer in Alicante province on July 13.
And on July 4 a 55-year-old man lost his life after being gored at the St Pere festival in Grao de Castellon.
