Two bulls were killed instantly at the weekend when they smashed into one another during an event in northern Spain.

They clashed heads at the arena in Sanguesa, Navarra, before they had been due to face a matador.

Weighing around half a ton each, they charged towards one another with their heads down, crashing with such force that they died immediately upon impact.

They then keeled over onto their backs during the annual festival, similar to Pampalona’s San Fermines.

One critic of the blood sport said on social media: ‘At least this spared them from being tortured slowly.’
