RATON TWIRLER:

Bull kills its third man in 10 years during festival in eastern Spain (Associated Press/guardian.co.uk, Sunday 14 August 2011)

An inquiry was launched on Sunday after a 29-year-old man was gored to death by a bull during a festival in eastern Spain.

The man, whose name was not released, died at a hospital in the town of Xativa on Saturday.

A regional government official said an investigation into the goring had been opened.

The 500 kilogram bull - named Raton - has killed two other members of the public during festivals over 10 years. Because of the animal's reputation, his owners reportedly earn €10,000 (£8,750) each time it appears at a festival.

"He's the one that gets the highest prices," owner Gregorio de Jesus said of Raton. "But still he works out the cheapest because wherever he goes organizers double the ticket price."


Send him to Tottenham.
