Why is this news?

I don't know what movie it's from, (hell, it's been used in dozens of movies) but there's a line, normally spoken with a massive New York accent, that goes:

"Hey, you mess wit da bull, sometimes you get da horns, yaknow?"

Or let me put it this way: If you choose to sprint in front of a one-ton animal that can run at high speeds, possesses rather large, sharp horns and a really bad attitude, then at some point someone is going to have a few large holes appear in random order in their body.

And yet it makes the news year after year. "BULL GORES RUNNER!" "DOG BITES MAN!" "THE SKY IS BLUE!" "WATER IS WET!" "ALGORE IS AN ANIMATRONIC ROBOT!"

We already know these things. Is it just a slow news day?
