Why is it that Bull Charges at A Red Cloth?
We all know, bull fighting is a great sport in Spain, and a very important one in many other countries. People are quite excited about this sport. They believe that there are certain things about it, and nothing can change their minds.
One thing among bull fight fans and others believe is that anything red makes a bull angry and causes him to attack. The bull fighter has to have bright red cape and he has to be able to use this with a degree of skill.
The stark truth remains that if the same bull fighter had a white cloth or a yellow or a green cloth or a black cloth – the accomplishment of same thing with the bull would be possible. Be it known that bulls are colour blind.
Bull fighters in majority know this fact and admit in private. In fact, some matadors conducted experiments in which white cloth was used and they got the same behaviour of the bull as with red cloth.
What makes the bull charge is the movement of the cape and not the colour of cloth. Anything waved in front of a bull would definitely excite him, since the bull is colour blind. Probably his reaction might be better probably as the bull can see it better.
