Ratón, the killer bull

Ratón was so named because he was thin and small when he was born. Nothing, in other words, as he is now. On Saturday, Ratón killed his third victim at an encierro in Xàtiva, a young man who was being watched because he appeared to be under the influence and was about to be removed from the ring. Ratón got there first. The organizers of these feria encierros pay up to €15,000 to feature Ratón in the hope that he will attract ticket-buying punters. He evidently attracts idiots as wel.
