Bull kills third man at Spanish festivities
Monday 15 August 2011
A killer bull has claimed another victim after fatally goring a 29-year-old man during festivities in Spain's eastern Valencia region, an official said yesterday.
The man, whose name was not released, died at a hospital in the town of Xativa late Saturday, a regional government official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with government rules and said an investigation into the goring had been opened.
Television images showed the man being tossed in the air and then dragged along the ground in Xativa's bullring.
The 1,100lb (500kg) bull – named Raton, which means mouse – has killed two other people during festivals over the past 10 years.
Because of Raton's fearsome reputation, his owners reportedly earn €10,000 ($14,250) each time he appears at a festival.
