Marauding Bull Clears Out Irish Bar

Well here's a good reason to let people have guns in bars: a bunch of barflies were driven out of the Porter House Tavern in Kingscourt County, Ireland after a bull came tearing through the place. It seems the bull had escaped from a cattle auction nearby and charged at several customers before he was contained; thankfully, no one was hurt.

Says owner Cyril Rafferty, "It'll take a while before we live this one down and we've been getting all the bull-in-the-china-shop and Red Bull jokes." Probably Rafferty should just own it like the deer-invaded bar in Ohio did and put Red Bull on special.
