Chaos during a bullfight - level 2

Chaos during a bullfight - level 2

26-06-2014 07:00

A bullfight changed into chaos in a village in Peru. The drunken ring assistant untied a rope which protected participants from the bull.

The angry bull ran into people and threw them in the air. One young boy jumped on top of a car to escape the bull. It hurt at least 10 people.

Many of the people were drunk during the bullfight. The bullfight ends a cultural festival which dates back to the 17th century. The assistant who released the bull was later caught by people and they lashed him publicly.

Difficult words: chaos (lots of problems happen at one time), participant (person who takes part in something), date back (the tradition was begun in the 17th century), lash (hit).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
