(Newser) – A fearsome bull killed a man at a festival in Spain Saturday—the bull's third kill in 10 years. Ratón, or Mouse, has such a terrifying reputation that its owners earn more than $14,000 whenever it appears at a festival, the Guardian reports. This time around, witnesses say the 29-year-old victim was apparently drunk and had already been escorted back to his seat once before Ratón entered the bullring. The man then went back down into the ring and was gored.
