Fight to the Death!

The Chillingham Bulls do fight on a regular basis and there are historic accounts of them fighting to the death. In more recent times, quite a few deaths have been attributed to fighting due to the visible injuries, but no such event has been witnessed – until now.

On the 7th April, the Park Manager was approaching two bulls at the southern side of the Park, when one suddenly, and without warning, launched itself into the flank of its unsuspecting victim, knocking it to the ground. The aggressor then charged again, crashing into its prostrate victim just behind the shoulder, pinning it to the ground. Fight over.

Strangely, there was no cow in the vicinity and no preliminary signs of aggression. This was not a noble duel for the love of a beautiful cow. It was a brutal assault on an unsuspecting victim. It was murder!
