Bull jumps into crowd at Spanish arena, 40 hurt


A trip to the bullring turned to terror for spectators in Spain when the bull decided not to play by the rules.

Around 40 people were injured as the animal ran amok in the stands at Tafalla in the northern Navarra region.

A 10-year-old boy suffered stomach wounds. Another member of the crowd was gored in the back. Most of the injuries were minor.

This was not a traditional bullfight but a contest of ‘recortadores’ in which those taking part try to dodge the bull as it runs around the arena.

The animal leapt over the security barrier and into the crowd at the fifth attempt. It was eventually restrained, removed using a crane and killed.
