No Health'n'Safety Bull here

Telegraph | News | Bulls kill 13 at Indian harvest festival

The deaths from goring or trampling during the four-day festival have caused concern, but organisers and police said "all possible precautions" were taken for the event.
Four people died and 200 were injured in one celebration in a temple at Alaganallur, 15 miles from the city of Madurai when some 600 beasts, led by the ferocious white temple bull, were released into the crowd.
Bull owners pride themselves on making their animals as aggressive as possible either by baiting them or feeding them large quantities of arrack, the local firewater.

Fair enough - bit of concern, but these things happen....
