Comment: While American bulls are raised to be docile and used for food, the use of them for sport around the world has created a need for breeding a more aggressive animal.
Spanish public television showed dramatic images of screaming spectators, including children, frantically trying to avoid the animal after it hurdled a security barrier that surrounds the arena as well as a fence and clambered into the crowded stands.
The incident occurred on Wednesday evening in the bullring in the town of Tafalla, in the Navarra region.
Some 30 people were injured, the local Diario de Navarra newspaper said.
Most suffered cuts and bruises or shock, but one man was gored in the back and a 10-year-old boy was being examined at a hospital in the nearby town of Pamplona after suffering multiple bruises.
