Chaos during a bullfight - level 3

Chaos during a bullfight - level 3

26-06-2014 07:00

At least 10 people have been injured after a bullfight broke out into chaos in rural Peru.

The annual bullfight in a small village descended into mayhem when the ring assistant, who was apparently drunk, untied a rope used to protect participants from the bull.

While the crowds tried to move away, the raging bull rammed into local residents, sending them flying in the air and hurling them towards the ground.

One young boy jumped on top of a car to avoid the bull's path.

According to local media, a number of people were drunk to celebrate the bullfight which marked the end of a cultural festival which dates back to the 17th century.

The man responsible for releasing the bull was later grabbed by members of the crowd and publicly lashed as punishment.

Difficult words: rural (countryside), annual (happening every year), descend (change), mayhem (chaos), ram (crash), hurl (throw), grab (take something), lash (hit with a whip).
