A 46 year old man was gored to death in a bull rally in eastern Spain on Saturday. The man died yesterday morning as a result of the horrific injuries.
The festival was taking place in Pucol, in the Valencia region when the bull was released into the streets. After attempting to hide in a doorway, the man was dragged out by the bull’s horns, brutally mauling and trampling him.
Others were believed to have attempted to distract the bull as the man tried to escape but by the time the bull ran off it was too late for the father-of-two.
He was taken by ambulance to hospital but died shortly after arriving at Clinico de Valencia. Celebrations have been suspended as a mark of respect and the City Council has announced there will be an official day of mourning next Sunday.
