As you may know, the Spanish town of Pamplona is in the middle of it’s world famous running of the bulls festival— a nine day celebration that honors the city’s patron saint, San Fermín.

A few days before the annual festival started a semi-naked “running of the nudes” protest took place by PETA, demanding an end to the event. 

And now a group of feminists are demanding, not the end of the bull running events, but a running of the cows to make the festival more gender equal.

The women are demanding that they get thier own version of the festival made world famous by Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.

A local student web site, www.estudiln.net, is demanding “equality for men and women”, arguing that its only logical that women should have their own bull run, despite the fact that women have been allowed to participate in the death defying race for many years.

 “Cows, as well as bulls, have four legs and a natural instinct to run,” says their manifesto. “An encierro for cows, would put Pamplona at the vanguard of traditional fiestas with equality for men and women.”

Organizers of the festival, which runs from July 7-14, have not responded to the suggestion.

But, do cows have massive horns on their heads which can be used to spear the flesh of an adrenalin pumped human?

Not that I know of.

But perhaps a running of the cows would result in much less death and injury than a running with the bulls, but less fun offcourse.

Bull Running 2007- Yeeha!
