Only in Spain: 6 toros 6

Let me see..
At noon yesterday, highway AP-6 near Segovia had to be closed for 45 minutes because six fighting bulls had escaped from a nearby ranch and were attacking cars. The Guardia Civil eventually chased them back into their pasture. No injuries or serious accidents, but there were some very frightened drivers, and the owner of the ranch will be charged with causing a traffic hazard. Olé.

Oh...so that's the charge for letting your fighting toro loose in public streets...

It was only a rural highway, so it wasn't that bad.

However, there's a bull named Ratón (Mouse) who has become a celebrity because he has gored people 33 times so far in running-of-the-bull events. Municipalities are paying top euro to have Ratón come to their fiestas as part of the entertainment. Spaniards are crazy.

I saw him on television working over some poor runner. I say it's time for a barbecue and some hand-tooled leather goods.
