The weekend's International Bullriding Championship presented by Joana Bueno at the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds in Davie, Florida taught us many important lessons.

For one, we learned that Brazilian cowboys, against whom a U.S. team were pitted for bullriding supremacy, take the sport quite seriously.

We also saw that standing too close to the fence is dangerous, a bucking bronco may smash his horns through and knock your beer out your hand.

But why were the bulls so angry? Short Order thinks it had a lot to do with their proximity to the churrasco that was being butchered and grilled just yards from their pens for a crew of bloodthirsty human sportsfans. 

Check out the following image sequence for a clear depiction of the relationship between bull aggression and human consumption.
