Bull fights back – level 3
At least four people have been injured in Peru after a bullfight went wrong. This video footage shows how the tormented bull turned on the crowd at a bullring in Taraco in the province of Huancane.
Provoked by spectators throwing objects at him from the stands, the bull jumps high enough to clear the barriers around the ring, landing in the crowd. Panicked spectators are seen pushing and jumping back into the bullring to avoid the animal.
Bullfighting remains popular in Peru where between 5 and 600 bullfights take place every year. This event is now being investigated by district authorities.
Difficult words: tormented (suffering), provoke (to make someone or something angry), spectator (somebody who spectates – is watching something).
