No, Torero is not taught in the University. Poke tongue | ;-P Laugh | :laugh:

The real story is:
Those bulls were the advertisement of a brandy brand. When alcohol / tobacco publicity got prohibited, the owners of that alcoholic drink, just took away the letters and left the bull behind. In the over 70 years that they have been placed near our highways all around the country (IIRC there were over 60 units of them), people started to see it as a identity mark (some of them put a sticker in the car, other have done themselves a tatoo...).
The point is, when some local authorities made public that they wanted to take the bulls away (because it still remembered to the alcoholic drink and was like indirect publicity), there were some resistance against it. Up to the point that a group of students gathered together, went to the place were the "biggest enemy" of the bull was and dismounted one of them, took it to the campus and mounted it again within the ground of the university, where it has been visible but safe (nowadays I think there are less than 10 of them) for the last 30 years aprox.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
