Live bulls to run on Toronto’s Bay Street – Business – CBC News

Bull Rider Down 2012

Toronto‘s Bay Street will soon be overrun by more bulls than usual — and not just the financial variety.

At least, that’s what the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair hopes will happen, as the festival plans to kick off its 90th year with a launch unlike anything tried before.

On Tuesday, Oct. 30, the group plans to release six 900-kilogram bulls at the intersection of Bay Street and Wellington in Toronto’s financial centre. The plan is to coax the animals north toward King Street before being corralled.

“While spectators will be able to marvel at these magnificent animals, the streets will be closed to pedestrian and vehicle traffic during the running of the bulls,” the fair’s organizers said in a press release announcing the stunt.
