15 of the Most Dangerous Festivals Around the World
Bull Riding at Calgary Stampede, Canada
Bull riding is considered as one of the most dangerous sports in the world. Held every July, a participant must stay atop for eight seconds on a bucking mad bull.
The rider tightly fastens one hand to the bull with a long braided rope. There have been a number of casualties over the years and the event has faced the backlash of animal welfare activists as well.
