When, oh when, will human beings stop torturing animals for entertainment?- Patricia Cori


Matadors waiting to take part in a bullfight were left scrambling for their lives when a half-tonne bull jumped a ring-side barrier.

In shocking footage in which the animal appears to target its tormentors, the bull is seen to enter the ring at full gallop before heading straight for a fence which it vaults with ease.

As onlookers scatter, the animal gets a second boost by pushing off the red barrier before finally crashing into a second tier of seating in the Mexican ring.

Entry: The bull is let into the ring at full gallop where it immediately makes a beeline for the crowd

Leap: The animal does not slow down as it heads for the fence, jumping over it with ease

Men watching the fight in Plaza de Toros, Mexico City, were forced to flee but a picador – responsible for spearing the animals during the fights – was hurt.

Landing: The bull smashes into a second tier of seats, causing chaos and fear among spectators

In the confusion one man is seen to jump into the ring to escape the beast, then leap straight back when he realises it is about to re-emerge.

The animal then returns to the ring and the fight later continued as planned.

The incident mirrored a similarly horrifying event in Tafalla, Spain, in August when a huge bull jumped an even bigger barrier and started to rampage through the crowd.

At least 40 people were injured in the incident, with a 10-year-old boy suffering serious stomach wounds.
