Forty people were injured when a bull leapt into the packed grandstands of a Spanish bullring and ran amok, charging and trampling on spectators, regional officials said Thursday.

Video shown on Spanish media outlets showed the bull jumping several yards high out of the ring, clearing two barriers before landing in the stands and raising a panic as he lurched through the screaming crowd, charging and tossing everything he could.

The animal was brought under control after several minutes and later killed.

The incident occurred Wednesday at the Tafalla arena in the northern region of Navarra during a spectacle in which mostly young people try to get a bull to charge at them so they can dodge it with slick movements of their bodies. Unlike standard bullfights, the bulls are not killed in these events.

On Wednesday, the bull had already attempted to jump into the stands twice. After damaging a horn, he was about to be returned to the corral and replaced with another beast when he tried a third time and succeeded.

actually this wasn't a regular bullfight. It was a special kind of event where only young "toreadors" step in the ring and fire the bull up by taunting it. They do not carry weapons or flags. After that they have to try and evade the bull by for example jumping over it for show

I do agree about normal bullfighting though

LOL people are surprised a fucking wild animal fought back when it's life was being threatened?

Reminds me of the kids in SD taunting the tiger, and then the tiger jumps out and kills the shit out of them. It's a fucking tiger what did you expect!

I dunno how he landed both feet on that little piece of wood for the double jump...man I bet those people were shitting bricks. Good for the bull, even though it was a no-weapon event as that guy said.
