After having been loaded onto trucks, potentially driven hundreds or thousands of miles, and herded into an arena filled with hundreds of screaming people, bulls used for running events will bolt out of the pen in panic when the starting gate opens.

Tuko Lamo is spam. Would you pay good money to follow someone's comment if they can't even spell right?
Of course, we could all be "nice" and chip in some money for Turko to buy a decent dictionary so his scam becomes more believeable.

ok Spam is reported.
back to the story....what insurance company covers "gored by bull"? "trampled by bull"? Or is it considered "an act of God" and the injured party gets zip for his/her stupidity to be in such an event? Time to scoop some folks out of the gene pool.
