People hurt in Pamplona Bull run shock

Thirteen people were injured in the running of the bulls in Pamplona yesterday. The half-mile dash through the Spanish city's cobbled streets turned chaotic when the six bulls became separated after ploughing into a crowd. Six of the injured runners were Spanish while the rest were from Britain, the US, Australia, New Zealand, Romania and South Korea. They suffered head, rib or other injuries from falling or getting trampled. None were gored.

I Know this is a statement of the blindingly obvious but I am far from shocked or stunned. If the bulls knew what they faced at the end of the rum I'm sure they would make sure they took out as many people as they could then gore the matador

Have to be a bit off the brain really. Here they parade around the church icon of St George and St Peter.

Serves themselves right. Feel sorry for the bulls, if these idiots get gored then it's not enough justice for what the animals go through.

Agreed. Who could blame the bulls. List me as being in favor of the bulls' hit.

We had the Australian injured in Spain angle on the news yesterday.

Haha I like that turn of phrase Steve.

It;s a bit of a dog bites man story though isn't it Colin?

Install a machine gun on every bull. To even the playing field a bit.

Can they be adapted to be fired with a hoof? If so then a great idea!

I'm no animal activist but these ash holes get everything they deserve and then some.

I looked for some clips on youtube of the footage and you know what? I'm willing to wager that the majority of these fools are foreigners while the Spanish people yuck it up and make a killing draining them of their money as fast as they can. There's never going to be a shortage of idiots so I guess business is good for the proprietors of the San Fermin Festival.
