Bull jumps over fence at rodeo event, sends 5 people to hospital with injuries

Bull jumps over railing

Five people were injured Saturday night after a bull jumped the fence during a “Sisters Rodeo” event held in Sisters, Ore.

A video of the incident went viral on X showing the bull named “Party Bus” leaping over the barricade as the crowd sang along to “God Bless the U.S.A.” The bull then charged at unsuspecting patrons who were walking around the rodeo grounds. Beware of the bad language in the video.

Two patrons were directly attacked by the bull. Three others were injured while trying to flee the chaotic scene, according to Colin Sheeley and Dennis Romero of NBC News. All five injured were transported to nearby hospitals, but their injuries were considered to be minor.

The woman who was flipped twice by the bull was seen eating out for breakfast in Terrebonne the very next day, the restaurant shared on its Instagram account.

“Despite being tossed by the bull at the rodeo last night, this strong lady made it to breakfast on time, and we are happy to see that she is alright,” the post’s caption read.

Rodeo staff, arena pickup men, and local first responders teamed up to quickly contain the bull. The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) confirmed that “Party Bus” has been banned from participating in any future PRCA-sanctioned rodeos.

“Sisters Rodeo” did not cancel or postpone the rest of their scheduled events after the incident. The annual 5-day affair continued festivities on Sunday.
