"Killer bull"?

MADRID (AP) — A killer bull has claimed another victim after fatally goring a 29-year-old man during festivities in Spain's eastern Valencia region, an official said Sunday. 
The headline for this AP/NYT story is "Killer Bull in Spain Fatally Gores Man". I've read the story. A more accurate, more appropriate headline would be "Drunken, risk-averse fool invites bull to gore him; succeeds".

Don't you just hate this nonsense. It's like the park going idiots that get mauled by a bear after they break all the rules. Then the headline reads "Bear goes on attack!"
