15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Tangled up in bull.

Rodeo is poplar in rural Michigan. Bull-riding is considered the most extreme category. This rider was thrown by the bull, but his hand remained stuck in his grip, so he could not let go. After a few harrowing seconds he came loose, but not before becoming wrapped around the bull.
