Spanish bulls have scored a symbolic victory at Madrid's prestigious Las Ventas ring by injuring three matadors and forcing organisers to call off the bullfight.

The fight, the 12th of the famed San Isidro festival, was stopped late Tuesday (local time) after bulls gored two matadors and tossed a third into the air.

Las Ventas said it was the first time in 35 years a fight was stopped at the ring because of matador injuries.

The first torero, David Mora, was still being treated in a Madrid hospital on Wednesday, but was said to be out of danger. The other two bullfighters were expected to be discharged later.

The two bulls were "Deslio," a 532-kilogram beast from the El Ventorrillo breeding ranch, and the 537-kilogram "Feten" of the Los Chospes ranch.
