Background: Watched intently by matadors Mario Cabre and Victoriano Valencia, a unique circus act was rehearsed in San Feliu de Llobregat, near barcelona, Spain, recently. Three wild bulls of the type used in bullfighting, performed tricks usually associated with lions, tigers and bears.
Reared on a farm in Salamanca, the trio - "Machaquito", "Bombita", and "Gallito" - were selected for their ferocity by trainer Don Manuel Rueda. Months of patient and dangerous contact with the unpredictable animals has resulted in a "thrill" soon to be seen in "Big Tops" all over the world.
