Threat

A crowd scatters in panic when a bull is stung by a bee and runs wildly through a town festival.

The bulls are away that if they are not chosen to take part in bullfights they will be sent to the abattoir. In one scene, two bulls launch a rescue mission to save one of their friends who is in the abattoir and have a narrow escape when the machinery is activated accidentally.

A bull enters a bullring where a matador prepares for the contest, but the bull refuses to fight and the scene plays out as a slapstick chase around the ring. The threat in this and other scenes are generally played for funny effect with reassuring outcomes..
