Mouse that gored, a popular star of Spanish bull runs, dies
Raton, a bull which became one of the most feared attractions of Spanish town festivals after killing three people, dies aged 12
A fighting bull named "Mouse", which became one of the most popular and most feared beasts in Spanish town festivals after he killed three people, has died.
El País said the 12-year-old black-and-white bull, which weighed 550kg, died on Sunday on a ranch in the eastern town of Sueca.
Owner Gregorio de Jesus told the newspaper he planned to stuff the beast and put him on display at the ranch.
The bull, known as Raton (mouse in Spanish), was a leading attraction in bull-running events during summer festivals because of his lethal charges.
Town halls were reported to have paid up to $18,000 to have him in their festivals. Some 3,000 people turned out for his final run before he was retired in September 2011.
