23 Bizarre Photos Of Dwarf Bullfighters

Clowns and little people and bulls…oh, my. Here are some frankly weird images of dwarf bullfighting in Colombia and Mexico. Plus some not-so-little people dressed as Smurfs, Captain America and Superman for some reason.

Colombian dwarf actors and clowns acknowledge the audience before the start of their performance in a bullfight show at La Macarena bullring in Medellin, Antioquia department, Colombia on February 19, 2012. The artists are part of a troupe of dwarves and clowns which perform as bullfighters at fairs and patron-saint festivals throughout Colombia and some places of South America.

The Enanitos Toreros are a group of six comedians from Yucatan who travel across Mexico entertaining audiences and carrying on a tradition born in Spain along with regular bullfighting. "Little people," as some prefer to be called, have been entertainers for centuries, being excluded by discrimination or their height handicap from many everyday professions. Unlike traditional bullfights, the animals are not harmed, and calves are used instead of full-size bulls. Cancun, Mexico, May 29, 2011.
