The bulls are moved from the ranch to the bullring in special crates or trucks designed to prevent the animals from being injured during the trip. They are held in a corral at the bullring until the morning of the fight when they are moved to small, separate pens under the stand waiting for the fight. When the bull is needed the gate to the pen is opened and the bull charges outside into the ring.

In some older cities, especially in Spain, bulls may be held in corrals outside the city and then either driven or forced to run to the bullring through barricaded streets. Pamplona is an example.

What is the time limit on bullfighting?

From the time a bull enters the ring until it is dragged out dead is usually about 20 minutes. Once a matador begins his faena - the artistic cape work preparng for the kill - the matador has 10 minutes tp complete the job. At 10 minutes a trumpet blast - aviso - is sounded as a warning. A second trumpet followed by a third at 15 minutes signals the matador to leave the ring and the bull is then led out of the ring and killed in the pens. This is an ultimate disgrace for a matador. Even a single aviso is a mark against the matador.
