Killer bull worth double admission fatally gores another man

WHO: A killer bull has claimed another victim after fatally goring a 29-year-old man during festivities in Spain’s eastern Valencia region.

HOW: Television images showed the man being tossed in the air and then hit along the ground in the town of Xativa’s bullring. The man, whose name was not released, died at a hospital in Xativa late Saturday.

WHY IT’S OUTRAGEOUS: The 1,100-pound bull — named “Raton,” which means mouse — has killed two other members of the public during festivals over the past 10 years. Because of Raton’s fearsome reputation, his owners reportedly earn $14,250 each time he appears at a festival. “He’s the one that gets the highest prices,” owner Gregorio de Jesus said of Raton last year. “But still he works out the cheapest because wherever he goes, organizers double the ticket price — from [$8.50] to [$17].”
