TORDESILLAS, Spain (AP) — Spaniards on horseback have chased a hulking bull and speared him to death at an annual fiesta held in a small central town. But the 580-kilogram (1,279-pound) bull named Vulcano first managed to gore a news agency photographer and another person.
The centuries old tradition in Tordesillas is called savage by animal rights activists, and Spain's Pacma group against animal mistreatment gave a petition to Parliament with 85,000 signatures demanding it be banned.
The bull gored Agence France Presse freelance photographer Pedro Armestre in the right thigh Tuesday after it was set loose amid thousands of people and the spear-bearing horse riders. AFP says in a statement that Armestre was conscious and taken to a hospital for surgery.
Another unidentified person also suffered a non-life threatening goring.
