Why does a bull react violently to the colour red?
Bull is colour blind and cannot be affected by the colour of the cloth...

It is the movement of the cloth that makes the bull react violently as like most mammals, the bull too is colour blind and cannot be affected by the colour of the cloth. When a matador moves a cloth (irrespective of the colour) in front of the bull, it perceives the movement as a threat and is angered, and as a result, reacts violently.
