Bull spectators got just deserts

There isn't a lot to smile about on the news these days, but I was delighted to see 'Billy the Bull' do an Eric Cantona and leap into the crowd of sad spectators in the bullring in Spain, scattering and maiming.

Mighty stuff and just deserts for the same people who were there to see him being terrified in the most awful way.

But "it's our culture and national sport", some moustachioed Miguel said in response to suggestions that they follow the Catalans and ban bullfighting nationwide in Spain.

The only downside was poor Billy was put down presumably because he was -- eh, dangerous?
