    Spanish bull kills third victim

    Spanish bull kills third victim


    A bull named Mouse has claimed its third victim, killing a man during an amateur event at the traditional August fiesta in the region of Valencia.

    Mouse is renowned in Spain, where his fearsome record in the ring has made him a legend and a big draw for both bullfighters and spectators.

    The bull had already killed twice before in the last 10 years.

    His latest victim, who died in hospital after being tossed around by the bull, appeared drunk, reports say.

    Mouse, or Raton in Spanish, was the star draw at this amateur event.

    He is a massive bull, weighing more than 500kg (1,100lb).

    He had already killed two people; in Xativa on Saturday night, a 30-year-old Spanish man became the third victim.

    Killer reputation

    Video images filmed in the ring, and shown hourly on Spanish television, show the bull lifting the man on his horns and tossing him to the floor before attacking him further.

    The man was immediately dragged out of the ring but died in hospital.

    Reports in the local media say he had appeared to be drunk and had already been removed from the ring several times before the bull appeared.

    Professional bullfights and amateur events such as this one are a central part of the annual summer festival in Xativa - traditions that date back many centuries.

    Raton the bull was the headline act on posters around town.

    His killer reputation ensures he is in big demand at such adrenalin-fuelled fiestas and means his owners are said to earn more than $14,000 (8,600) for every appearance.

    In Xativa an official enquiry has been opened into the latest death, but the town's August festival, including the bullfights, will continue.

    I always cheer for the bull; the mass mental illness of finding enjoyment watching an animal die in slow agony gives credibility to pure racism.

    So many people say these blood sports are nasty, but what if it was pitbulls against chavs or drug dealers, most would pay money to watch them being chewed up

    It's a shame the French dont fight bulls, it'd be funny watching a bull running around with bunch of frogs hanging off it's horns by their arseholes, I'd happily pay to watch that

    The owner of that bull wants to take out an ad in normal countries like the UK, "Sponsor My Bull, it has killed 3 tossers this week", the guy would be raking it in.

    Behave DD, if TD started to sponsor the bull, we could lose half our members in a very short space of time. How about 'Toss a Tosser' as an ad slogan

    I think that's been proved incorrect, not about the run away French surrender monkeys they're still useless as a eunuch in Pattaya, no a Bull will run at anything he can kill, he doesn't give a toss for it's race creed or colour as long as it bleeds he's happy.

    The Catalonians are banning bullfighting from 2012 so no more tossing/Ole's/red capes for them. Been around since 711 AD apparently.

    Hardly likely that the sport will go underground however maybe they will use goats or sheep as fodder in order to maintain their macho image.

    Me? i'd throw a few polar bears/tigers and gorilla's in there for them to wrestle with.
