The release of bulls in the Doubs?
Besançon however has no bullfighting tradition.
Two days in a row, cattle ran away from the Edison Street slaughterhouses.
On Wednesday, a very strong calf escaped from the Bisontine Slaughter Company.
The angry beast managed to force a barrier leading to a railway line causing the delay or removal of eight TERs, according to the Republican East.
A louveterie lieutenant had been called to kill the animal "resistant to bullets yet fired at close range", according to the Lorraine daily.

This Thursday, two bulls of the Salers breed (such as Cantal cheese), endowed with spectacular horns, made a splash in the morning.
A solid system made up of police officers and slaughterhouse staff has been put in place.
The imposing ruminants wandered around the slaughterhouse area before heading towards a forest.
One of the two was surrounded in the afternoon and then shot, still according to the Republican East.
Around 6 p.m., the other was still in nature, enjoying the last moments of life and freedom.
