The former advertising hoarding in the shape of a bull, 88 of which are perched high up on hills throughout the Spanish mainland, 'will cross the Strait of Gibraltar for the first time and be installed in north Africa,' the daily El Mundo said.
Authorities in the tiny autonomous enclave of Melilla decided on Monday to set up one of the 14-metre (50 feet) high bulls.
The silhouette will be 'easily visible' in the surrounding area, a spokesman for the local authority, which is controlled by Spain's conservative opposition Popular Party, told the ABC newspaper."
