    An 11-year-old Franco-Mexican bullfighter killed six young bulls on Saturday in a controversial performance that child protection and anti-bullfighting campaigners had hoped to stop.

    "I'm happy to have achieved this great victory," said the boy before leaving the bloodied bull ring in Merida, southeastern Mexico.A local judge earlier gave the go-ahead for the child to fight six calves aged from one to two years after reviewing licenses and permits submitted by Michelito's father, the former French bullfighter Michel Lagravere.

    Animal rights groups and child protection officials had previously asked the state human rights commission to suspend the event.But the boy's father defended the decision to allow the 11-year-old to fight, saying: "Michelito has fought bulls since he was six years old and he's never had a serious accident."

    A video of the fight will be sent to Guinness for consideration for a world record - for the number of bulls killed and the age of the bullfighter.Some 3,500 people, including many young children, gathered at the ring to witness the bullfight.

    Several bullfights by Michelito were banned in France last summer after protests from anti-bullfighting associations.Michelito has killed dozens of bulls in Mexico since he was six years old.

    There's a joke about that:


    An american man goes to Spain and goes to a bullfight. After the fight, he went to a nearby restaurant for dinner, and asked the waiter for a recommendation. The waiter told him "We have the best cajones in the city. We use the testicles of the loser of today's bullfights." So the tourist orders them and they were big and tasty. He never had such great food.

    So the next day, the tourist returns to the restaurant and ordered the same dish. This time, the cajones were small and not very meaty, and they didn't taste very good. He asked the waiter "What's the deal with the bull testicles? Why are they so small today?".

    The waiter replied "I said we serve the testicles of the loser from the fights. Sometimes, the bull wins".


    It's good to see you back, Shannon.
