Bullfighter Francisco Rivera Ordóñez caused uproar earlier this week when he posted a photo of himself fighting a young bull carrying his five-month-old baby on Instagram. He titled the picture “Carmen’s debut” before explaining the family tradition; baby Carmen is the “fifth generation” to go through the early experience. He later posted a photo of himself on his father’s shoulders (inset). The pictures were fiercely criticised on social media and the Andalusian child protection authority said that it was studying the case. Meanwhile other bullfighters posted photos of themselves in the bullring with their children in their arms to show their support.source surinenglish
