    Running of the Bulls

    Running of the Bulls

    The Running of the Bulls is a practice that involves running in front of a small group of bulls that have been let loose, on a course of a sectioned-off subset of a town's streets. The most famous running of the bulls is that of the seven-day festival of Sanfermines in honour of San Fermín in Pamplona, although they are held in towns and villages across Spain, Portugal, and in some cities in Mexico, in San Jose Festival held in Trujillo, Peru, Mesquite, Nevada, and southern France, during the summer. Unlike bullfights, which are performed by professionals, anyone older than 18 may participate in an encierro.

    The history of The Running of the Bulls is not completely clear. It started when bullfighting became a popular pastime, and many bullrings were built. The only way to get the bulls from the corral to the bullring was by running them through the streets to the ring. Eventually, people started running with the bulls, even though it was actually illegal at the time. As every year passed, this became more and more popular, and has grown into this extremely important festival.


     


    Every year, between 200 and 300 people are injured during the run although most injuries are contusions due to falls and are not serious. Since record-keeping began in 1924, 15 people have been killed in Pamplona.

    If 200 to 300 people were killed on this bull run every year, I think that those would be better stats.
    Maybe then they would stop this stupid practice and show respect to the animals that they put into distress so babdly.
    GO BULLS!!!
