A 74-YEAR-OLD woman was left in a critical condition on Saturday, after a bull escaped from a local taurine event in the Valencia region and rampaged around the streets.
The incident took place in the municipality of Almassera, after the animal escaped from the neighbouring town of Tavernes Blanques by breaking through a barrier.
Sources from the Spanish Civil Guard told news agency EFE that the authorities were eventually able to corner and capture the bull with the help of agricultural workers.
The victim was charged by the bull, leaving her with serious injuries and requiring hospital treatment.
