Hello George, List
I believe Carl pointed out that the translated term "Bull" does not necessarily mean bovine but could be any male animal. I don't know if ewe included all female animals and not just a female sheep. So the bull reference could be referring to the llama.
In blast/overpressure testing I am directly familiar with, goats and less so sheep, have an aorta "defect" which makes them highly susceptible to shock that doesn't affect humans.

I feel comfortable in thinking that the Carancas shock waves could have been sufficient to kill a bull if it was of close proximity.
