A tense fifth bull runs awayThe Navarra regional government said three people, including an American, and three others suffered injuries on Monday.
It was run with Göring for the first time in the festival so far this year. There are three more daily runs before the festival ends on Thursday.
The regional government said a 25-year-old runner from Sunrise, Florida, was bleeding from a calf in a ballerina. The other two guards were from Spain, one in the ring and one on the road. No one was in serious condition.
Earlier the organizers of the festival had mistakenly said that the foreigner who landed in the ring was Australian.
Three other runners, all Spaniards, were treated for injuries sustained by falls during the race.
Television images showed a bull repeatedly tossing and hitting one runner against wooden barriers at the edge of the ring and then hitting another with the back of the foot.
CBS News’ Ian Lee reported that Scotch Snyder, 50, of Austin, Texas, was among thousands at the annual celebration.
“Hell yeah, I was scared, man,” said Snyder. “There’s a lot of fear running out of my blood but now I’m relieved and I’m drunk.”
Don Story, a teacher in America, said he had an easy target while running with the bulls.
“We’re just hoping to do a good job and not be one of those stupid foreigners who mess it up,” he said.
The spectacle lasted just three minutes, as hundreds of runners, mostly men, ran back and forth with six fighting oxen charging through the cobblestone streets of this northern city. The run ends at Pamplona’s Bullring, where the bulls are killed by professional bullfighters later in the day.
Last week, in the first Bull Run, six people were injured. These included a 30-year-old American man who fractured his left arm and a 16-year-oldIn Bulling.
Animal rights activists say it is the bulls who are at risk, and they want to leave the tradition in the past, Lee reports.
Chelsea Monroe, PETA’s senior digital campaign officer, said, “They are hit repeatedly for 20 minutes until they die and it is incredibly cruel and painful for the bulls to go through this process. “
Thousands of visitors come to the Pamplona festival, which was featured in Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises. The adrenaline rush of Morning Bull Run is followed by partying all day and night.
Eight people were put to death in 2019, the last festival before a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sixteen people have died inSince 1910, with the last death in 2009.
