TORDESILLAS, Spain (AP) — Spaniards on horseback have chased a hulking bull and speared him to death at an annual fiesta held in a small central town. But the 580-kilogram (1,279-pound) bull named Vulcano first managed to gore a news agency photographer and another person.

The centuries old tradition in Tordesillas is called savage by animal rights activists; Spain’s Pacma group against animal mistreatment handed a petition to Parliament with 85,000 signatures demanding it be banned.
