A bullfight in Sevilla, Spain.
This bull was pretty worn out by this point. He had endured a bit of blood loss, a pike, a few spears and a lot of running about. He needed some time and encouragement from the matador to gather his strength.

Aggression is deeply encoded in the beast, and a little fight remains until the end. This instinct counter-productively drives the bull forward in an unsteady and stumbling half charge which the matador can easily dodge.

The key here is to get the dazed animal to do a few party tricks- turn and weave, and otherwise let the matador really show his stuff in close quarters.
