Dangerous bullfights in Colombia – level 2

Dangerous bullfights in Colombia – level 2

04-04-2013 06:00

Shocking things happened during a bullfight in northern Colombia. Participants were hit by the animals. Two men were even killed when they were trying to control the bulls.

Doctors said that one of the victims, a 46-year-old man, was killed when the bull's horn went through his heart. Another person died later in the hospital.

More than 15 other people got hurt on the second day of the bullfighting festival which is on the country's Caribbean coast.

The sport is very dangerous and animal rights activists protest against it. But the sport still remains a popular activity in Colombia.

Interesting words: participants (people who take part in some event), victim (somebody who was attacked), 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.
