Bulls Fight Search and Rescue Workers on Ski-Doos

Five search and rescue team members on ski-doos were exposed to hazardous bull fighting in the rural Steinstaðahverfi near Varmahlíð in north Iceland on Tuesday, but managed to overcome the bulls after a three-hour struggle.

The bulls in question had escaped their confinements and were enjoying their freedom; jumping over fences and averting all attempts by locals to catch them. Eventually, the farmers called search and rescue for assistance, visir.is reports.

They arrived on ski-doos but the bulls were unfazed and attacked, trying to ram them with their horns. The search and rescue workers did not give up and finally won the bull fight, bringing the bulls back to the stables.
