Cape Town - A bull due to be slaughtered ran amok and gored a 10-year-old boy to death in Cape Town, the Cape Argus reported on Tuesday.

Ayanda Mfenku was attacked by the bull while standing in his yard in Philippi East on Sunday morning, the newspaper reported.

The bull was reportedly to have been used in the funeral ritual of Jackson Ntandiso, who died last week, but it broke loose.

"The raging bull shoved and injured an old man who was trying to force it into the yard, and it ran off frantically down the street, knocking over everyone who tried to get close to it," Ntandiso's daughter Yandiso was quoted as telling the newspaper.

"As it ran down the street, people moved out of the way and shouted for kids and drunken people to get out of its way."

According to the Cape Argus, the bull entered Mfenku's yard, gored him in the back and threw him against a wall. He died later in hospital.

The bull reportedly died overnight from shock and stress.
