Ipoh, Malaysia — Nine Singaporean tourists were attacked by a rampaging bull in downtown Ipoh on Sunday afternoon, reported The Straits Times.
The elderly tourists were eating beancurd on Jalan Raja Musa Aziz when the animal suddenly attacked the group out of nowhere about 4pm.
Four members of the group were injured, including a 74-year-old man who suffered lacerations on his ear, fingers and forearms.
His wife said he was “traumatized by the attack”.
The bull stepped on another woman’s chest when she fell to the ground.
Her sister said the extent of her injuries are not yet known, as she waited outside the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital emergency room at 6pm.
“This was supposed to be a good trip but it has turned out to be a horrible experience,” one of the tourists said.
Eyewitness said the bull, after attacking the tourists, ran to nearby Jalan Yau Tet Shin and then on to Jalan Sultan Iskandar with policemen and Civil Defence officers in pursuit.
They finally trapped and subdued the animal when it went into the Elim Gospel Hall compound on Jalan Chung Thye Phin.
It was later learned that the bull had escaped from its shed about 5 kilometers away from the place of the incident. Image/thestar.com
