    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 :p

    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. :eek:

    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.
