Spain Fire Bull
In this photo taken on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, revelers set the horns of the bull on fire, centre down, during the 'Toro de Jubilo' Fire Bull Festival in Medinaceli, Spain. Fire bull Festival "Toro de Jubilo" that takes place in the main square of Medinaceli is an ancient tradition from the bronze age. During the event a bull is tied to a pylon and flammable balls attached to the bull's horns are set on fire before the animal released. Revelers dodge the bull when it comes close until the flammable material is consumed. The bull is covered with a thick layer of mud on the back and face to protect it from burns.
