Its For Moo - Runaway Bull Gets Stuck In Phone Box

Its For Moo - Runaway Bull Gets Stuck In Phone Box

A bizarre battle between a bull and the phone box it became trapped in during a bull run has become an online hit in Spain.

The steer - taking part in a traditional stampede through the streets of Santacara, a town in northern Spain - can be seen running straight into the call box where it is trapped by its long horns.

"It gradually demolishes the phone box and pulls it to the ground but it is still caught up in the frame. As it struggled to get out it got angrier and angrier," said one spectator. "Most people were fleeing the scene and trying to scramble to safety."

Eventually brave spectators decide to take the bull by the horns and help manipulate the by now furious beast from the box.

"I've heard of a bull in a china shop but never one in a phone box before," said witness Malte Armenta.

"When he eventually was freed he looked very perplexed."

The video of the incident has become a huge online hit.

Officials say the bull completed the run and was treated for cuts caused by the broken glass.

"He was not seriously injured and finished the run where he received veterinary treatment," said a spokesman.

"Nobody else was injured in the incident. It was great people helped free the bull but I would warn against people getting too close to the bulls as they are very aggressive and injure scores of people every year."
