Reviving the Portuguese Bullfighting Tradition

The Portuguese tradition of bullfighting is a little different than the Spanish or Mexican versions — less blood, and a lot less common sense. Bullfighters grab the charging animal's head and horns and hold on for dear life, and in the end, the bull lives on. Reporter Shirley Skeel profiles a group keeping the tradition alive in California's Central Valley.
