A bull escaped from a farm near the A1 motorway in southern Portugal and began a trail of terror. This is a motorway which links Lisbon with the Algarve and due to the volume of traffic, it is also a place of attraction for prostitutes, waiting for their usual clients, namely lorry drivers. One prostitute received more than she expected this afternoon. The enraged bull found her sitting under a tree and launched a furious attack, killing her almost instantly. The bull then launched a campaign of terror on the motorway, destroying two light passenger cars, seriously damaging two police cars and creating slight damage to a heavy vehicle. A policeman killed the bull with seven shots from his pistol. It seems this particular bull was suffering from “mad cow disease”.
