Dangerous bullfights in Colombia – level 1

04-04-2013 06:00

Bad things happened in northern Colombia. It was at a bullfighting festival. Men tried to control the bulls. The bulls hit some men. The bulls killed two of the men.

One person was killed by a bull's horn. The horn went into his heart. That's what the doctors said. Another person died in the hospital.

Fifteen other people were attacked on the second day of the bullfighting festival. The festival was at the Caribbean Sea.

This sport is very dangerous. People who like animals protest against it. But this sport is still popular in Colombia.

Interesting words: bull (male cow), fighting (hitting or trying to kill somebody), horn (sharp hard thing on the head of a bull).

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