The bullfight was a popular game in ancient days. The successful bullfighters never attempted to catch the bull's neck, legs or any other organ else the fierce bull would overpower & injure them. They used to target the bull's horns only. Those, who could successfully catch the horns directly with full force, used to overpower the ferocious animal.
