Bull fights back – level 2

28-10-2015 07:00

In Peru, Bullfighting remains popular – between 500 and 600 bullfights take place there every year.

Four people were injured at a recent bullfight in the country. The spectators were throwing objects at the tormented bull when it jumped over the barriers.

It landed in the crowd. People started panicking and running away.

Difficult words: spectator (a person who spectates – watches something), tormented (suffering; in pain), barrier (a thing like a wall for protection).

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