A bull leapt into the packed grandstands of a Spanish bullring and ran amok,charging and trampling spectators and leaving 40 people injured,regional officials said on Thursday.

A video showed the bull jumping several metres high out of the ring,clearing two barriers before landing in the stands and raising a panic as he lurched through the screaming crowd,charging and tossing everything he could.

The 500-kg animal was brought under control by experienced bull handlers after several minutes and later killed.

The incident occurred on Wednesday at the Tafalla arena in Navarra during an event attended by about 3,500 spectators,in which mostly young people try to get a bull to charge at them so they can dodge it. Unlike standard bullfights,the bulls are not killed in these events.

The bull had already attempted to jump into the stands twice. After damaging a horn,he was about to be returned to the corral and replaced with another bull when he tried a third time and succeeded.
