Cattle news round-up

From The Daily Mail (a fortnight ago, I never got round to posting it):

Things got bloody in the bullring on Sunday as two matadors were brutally gored by the bulls they were attempting to take down... After being hooked under the ribs on the right side, Serna even had to be carried out of the ring and rushed to the hospital. Photos show him grimacing in pain and using his blood-covered hand to stop any further bleeding while being evacuated from the bullring.

From The Daily Mail (today):

A man, 33, was fatally gored in the neck as he ran from a bull seconds after he had waived a jumper at the incensed animal during an event in Spain on Saturday.

He was participating in the Fiesta del Toro Revolao when he was pinned to the ground and gored in a field next to screaming onlookers near Valfermoso de Tajuna, in the central province of Guadalajara. In a video from the event, the now [sic] deceased man is seen flapping a jumper at the bull, then sprinting away as it chases him.

He should have accepted the jumper then the bull might not have taken such a dislike to his shirt . . .

DCB, is there a typo in your comment?

I prefer the incident a few weeks ago where a bull stuck one of his horns up a matador's arse.
