Pamplona, Spain began the running of the bulls yesterday and it’s already gotten messy. No one has died at the event since 1995 when a 22-year-old American was trampled to death but 13 people are already injured at this years event.
The running of the bulls is a half mile sprint for those insane enough to go for it. Six bulls were let loose yesterday but they became separated early in the event and plowed straight into the crowd. Some spectators were injured from this because the bulls were disoriented and running the wrong way. Head and chest injuries are the most common during the running of the bulls. The worst case was a ruptured spleen and fractured ribs. That’s commitment.
The run usually only takes under five minutes and there are still seven scheduled runs left to go!
