Jaipur:  An Argentine man holidaying in India has been gored to death by a bull in the city of Jaipur, police said Sunday. The 29-year-old was walking along a street near Jaipur's main market on Saturday afternoon when he was attacked and seriously injured by the animal.

"He was struck by the bull's horn in the neck and stomach. He was rushed to the hospital but did not survive," Chaina Ram, a police officer in Jaipur told AFP. The Argentine embassy had been informed of his death, according to a report by news agency PTI.

Jaipur, also known as the Pink City, is one of most popular attractions for foreigners. Its ornate palaces and forts draw tourists from across the world. Stray cattle are a growing nuisance in the country with many of them roaming freely on highways and throughout cities. A 2012 livestock census found there were more than five million stray cattle across India.
