    Lightbulb Spain's running of the bulls festival

    Anyone on this board ever do this?
    So many people get hurt.

    I've never done it and I haven't been to Spain either.
    But even if I did go to Spain, I wouldn't do it

    I think it's cruel.

    I have been to Spain many times but would never consider this. Not because of my safety, but because I think it is so cruel.

    Its more "The Chasing of the People" than the "Running of the Bulls".

    It is a very ancient custom, though. Possibly the oldest to survive.

    I agree. This morning I heard the American man who was paralized during his run with the bulls is not doing well at all.

    He was running with the cows, when he was injured....
    It was a trial run, before they did it with the big boys-----BULLS
