A Bull Fight in Greenock - 1866

No, not this kind of bull fight!

More like raging bulls!  This is an article from the Glasgow Herald of 24 January 1866.

Sounds like there was utter chaos on the quayside.  I love the description of "great consternation among the strangers and loungers on the quay" and everyone having to run for safety.

Bulls, sheep, horses, loungers - must have caused quite a stir in the town!

Still, looks like it all ended well with no human casualties!
