Best Answer

corrida de toros-means running of the bulls

'Torero' or Toriando means bullfighting

Clarification:

Torero - someone who fights a bull, including the matador, banderillero, picador. All of these are toreros but only one is the matador.

Corrida de toros does, literally, mean 'running of the bulls' but is actually the term in Spanish for bullfight. Running of the bulls frequently brings on visions of Pamplona, Spain. It is not the same. What is done in Pamplona is the 'encierro' or penning of the bulls. It has the purpose of moving the bulls from the corral to the bullring a few blocks away.

How many people have died from a toreador?

This is a difficult question to answer with any degree of accuracy as there is no definitive source of information regarding how many people have died as a result of a toreador. However there have been some documented cases of fatalities that have occurred as a result of a toreadors bullfighting activities. Here are some of the most notable examples: In 1881 Spanish bullfighter Rafael Molina Jimenez was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1892 Juan Belmonte one of the most famous toreadors of all time suffered a fatal injury after he was gored by a bull during a bullfight in Seville. In 1904 Spanish bullfighter Jose Gomez Alvarez was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Valencia. In 1924 Spanish bullfighter Jose Sancho Casanova was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1934 Spanish bullfighter Antonio Fuentes was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1938 Spanish bullfighter Antonio Baena was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Seville. In 1940 Spanish bullfighter Manuel Cuadrado was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1944 Spanish bullfighter Jose Maria Rueda was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1949 Spanish bullfighter Francisco Montes was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 2011 Spanish bullfighter Victor Barrio was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Teruel.While these are some of the most widely reported cases of fatalities caused by toreadors there may be other cases that have gone unreported or underreported. Therefore it is difficult to accurately determine the exact number of people who have died as a result of a toreadors activities.
