Harrowing Video Shows Rodeo Bull Escapes Arena, Tosses Woman in Red as Crowd Runs for Their Lives

An out-of-control rodeo bull leaped out of an Oregon arena and charged through a crowd of spectators Saturday, violently tossing and trampling a woman who was in its path.

Watch:

Chaotic video shows the escaped animal charging at the woman — who was wearing a red shirt — as it tore through the 84th Sisters Rodeo.

The bull, named Party Bus, flipped the woman so that she landed squarely on its head before the frantic animal spun her a second time off its horns. She fell to the ground under the bull’s feet as it broke through a table and fled into the parking lot, the footage shows.

But the bull’s desperate attempt at freedom was short-lived, and Party Bus was captured by rodeo pickup men next to livestock holding pens, the Sisters Rodeo Association said.

Three people were injured “as a direct result of the bull, two of whom were transported to a local hospital,” the association said in a statement. They were all released the following day.

A deputy also sustained minor injuries while responding to the wild escape, but did not say whether it was caused by Party Bus, police told KTVZ.

Watch:

The incident happened shortly before 10 p.m. during the last run of the night at the 84th Sisters Rodeo, a popular event that draws many of the nation’s top cowboys and thousands of spectators.

A second video shows the unsuspecting crowd singing along to Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” as Party Bus runs loops around the arena, trying to avoid a pair of men on horseback.

That’s when the bull spontaneously soared over the 7-foot fence, sending crowds jumping out of the way.

Party Bus was removed from the arena after the incident.

“We obviously can’t replicate that scenario,” Leslie Lange, who provides livestock — including Party Bus –for the rodeo, told KTVZ.

“But we’re going to take him home, buck him again, do some training with him and try to never put him in that situation again.”

The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association said Saturday’s incident is a reminder that “while rodeo is a highly entertaining sport, on very rare occasions, it can also pose some risk.”

“PRCA sends our thoughts and well wishes to those who were injured or otherwise impacted by this frightening and very rare incident,” the association said.
