At least two people are being treated in hospital in Mexico City after a bull leapt into a crowd during a bullfight. The half-ton bull - named Pajarito or Little Bird - breached the safety barrier and landed on the fans. The rampage ended when a fight participant entered the stand and killed the animal with his sword.

There is video of this, but you can't really imagine the fear the spectators must have felt unless you've been to a bull fight before. I recently saw one in Ecija--the Spanish town my wife grew up in. The bulls that day were just "novillas" or "small ones" that the amateur matadores fight against before turning professional. I couldn't find anything small about them.
