Three Killed In Columbian Bullfight (Video)

Bullfighting is already a dangerous sport, so when you throw a bunch of drunk civilians into the mix, lives are bound to be lost.

That was the case in Sabanalarga, Columbia, where three individuals were killed and 37 were seriously injured when spectators at an event known as the “corraleja” stormed the ring.  The event is known for its party-like atmosphere, but the celebrating was cut short after several people who were believed to be intoxicated jumped into the ring.

One man died instantly in the ring while the two others were pronounced dead later at the hospital.  As for the cause of this tragedy, the mayor has blamed the entire incident on public drunkenness.  I’d have to agree with him there.  After all, booze and angry bulls seem like a bad mix.
