 A number of people from around the world have been seriously injured in Day 6 of the annual running of the bulls festival.

Report from San Jose Mercury News:

The pack of six 1,300-pound bulls and six steers—meant to keep the bulls running in a single pack—disintegrated shortly after the animals set off on the dash through the cobblestone streets of Pamplona in the sixth of eight planned runs.

One stray bull turned around and ran the wrong way. Herders with long sticks smacked it in the rump to get the animal pointed in the right direction.

The loose bull charged and tossed several runners—some of them clad in the traditional red-and-white garb of San Fermin—on its way to the bullring.

Several runners were trampled and seven runners were injured by bulls’ horns. One 48-year-old man from Pamplona was gored in the chest and was reported to be in very serious condition. A 23-year-old Mexican was gored in the stomach and was also reported as very serious.

The other runners who were gored were from Poland, Norway, Spain and the United States, with ages ranging from 23 to 50, officials said. They were all reported to be in serious condition.

  1. Just an anecdote. In spanish “liarse un PETA” means “roll the cheeba”. May be that’s what they use to do in the San Fermines.
