A Portent in Tafalla?

Posted in Environment, News by Bob Higgins on August 19, 2010

An 1100 pound bull weary at the taunting of spectators attending his performance in a bullring in Tafalla, Spain went on what looks like an indignant rampage. Leaping and climbing two barriers he stormed thirty feet into a frightened, scattering crowd tossing, trampling and goring at will.

The angry bull injured forty people, many of them children before being brought under control.

I can’t help having the feeling that this is a portent that the Earth and many of its creatures have had quite enough of us. Whether it’s tens of thousands of fish swimming ashore to die or bulls leaping into crowds in blind rage at their mistreatment at our hands, we may be witnessing what is only the beginning of a universal expression of dissatisfaction with our performance on this tortured planet.
