Screen grabs and aerial views show amateur bullfighters face off with a bull before a grandstand collapses during a festival in Colombia. A full three-story section of wooden stands filled with spectators collapsed, throwing dozens of people to the ground. A video taken at the scene showed people trying to escape from the stands while a bull continues to roam in the arena. Another person died earlier this month after being gored by a bull during a corraleja in the town of Repelon. While animal abuse is a crime in Colombia, bullfights and cock fights are protected because of the cultural history behind them.
