Tourist Attacked After Provoking Wild Bull on Beach in Mexico


Terrifying video captured a woman who was repeatedly gored by a wild bull on a popular beach in Mexico, despite the fact that bystanders desperately warned her to get away from the horned animal moments before the attack.

The incident occurred on La Fortuna beach in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur on Saturday. In the footage, posted to social media by a local radio station, the tourist was seen attempting to gather her belongings, which the bull had seemingly taken an interest in.

“Lady, you are really playing with it right now. Please don’t do that! Please!” a man could be heard yelling in English, as the woman kept trying to retrieve her bags from the bull. “F–cking moron!” yelled a second man, as the woman stood helplessly just a few feet away from the bull, which continued inspecting her things that she had since dropped on the sand.

But as she made one last attempt to grab one of her bags the bull suddenly turned on her, throwing her to the ground. For about 20 agonizing seconds, the beast continued rolling her on the sand with its horns, until another bystander stepped in with a bucket of water to distract it. The animal finally began to walk away from the woman, who was last seen crumpled on the ground.

Víctor Manuel Torres García, operational coordinator of the Los Cabos Federal Maritime-Terrestrial Zone, told the local newspaper El Sudcaliforniano that there are no permanent employees that patrol the area, and that they aren’t aware of the extent of the woman’s injuries.

However, he did add that livestock turning up on that part of the coast isn’t unusual due to ranches nearby the beach, and that it’s also common to see donkeys wandering on the beaches. Officials ask that tourists don’t feel the animals, as Torres García explains, “in order to prevent a situation similar to that of the bull attack from happening, because a donkey can bite a person.”

As always, this is just another unfortunate reminder why wild animals should always be given plenty of space.
