Rodeo Bullfighters Grab Life by the Horns

Aug. 18, 2014 - At the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo, in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the bullfighters of the Championship Bull Riding World Finals risk life and limb to keep the bull riders from harm. Different from matador or torero bullfighters, these professionals protect the bull riders. Once a rider is thrown off, the bullfighters' job is to rush in to grab the attention of the bull, allowing the rider to escape. Injuries are a constant threat, but the safety of the bull riders is their top priority.
