Red Bull is about to give this guy wings....

And a harp.

The run finishes at Pamplona's bullring, where later in the day the bulls are killed by professional bullfighters.

If a bull scores a win against a runner, they should be absolved of their bullfighting sentence and left to roam in some pasture set aside for that purpose.

If you add some cows, and pull the next bulls from that field in a few years, and repeat over time, you could create a strain of man-killing super bulls that might eventually kill all the runners, break free, and roam the earth in search of blood.

Professionally killed....continual stabbing, run it until so exhausted it can barely stand then put a sword through it while it gasps for breath.....and don't forget their little 'hide behind wall' in case things get dangerous.
Go Bulls!!!

Thanks to modern rifles that search for blood would end up in tasty burgers

You know why don't they take the bull market that farks around with the economy and such and put it together with these bulls and see who's left standing? All those predatory investment firms could use a good running with bulls like these after the shlacking they've done to buy out businesses, take all the profit, and leave all the debt.

I didn't know they did multiple runs (TFA said this was the fifth with three more scheduled).

I just found it on the interwebs. I assume that guy's call was interrupted.

I'm 100% on team bull. I know they don't win in the end, but I always root for them to take as many with them on the way out.

Originally the running part was just to herd the bulls to the arena before the bullfights. Now that so many humans feel the uncontrollable desire to run with the bulls it has become an even bigger spectacle than the bullfighting and they wanted to make it last so everybody who wanted to could be involved

They almost always get a matador or two in the second half too

It's a week long festival.  Each day they add another bull.  The party there is INSANE.  The entire city is drunk for a week.  I've never seen anything even close to it in North America.

I ran in 2007 on day one.  Managed to not get gored.  Left on day 3 to avoid too much liver damage.  But got some cool pictures...

People who do this deserve to be gored, and if I was there, I'd be HA-HAing like Nelson Muntz the entire time.

I'd be happy to see the bulls get a kill or two rather than a mere maiming.
At the end of the day they get slaughtered in the bullring as a spectacle for the blood-mad crowd, the bulls deserve their own sacrifices.

Eh. Don't be so sure. Death is over so quickly.  A good goring will leave you pooping into your fanny pack while unable to sexually function till you die twenty years later of a related infection.

Am I the only one who thinks the whole Spanish Bull thing is stupid as f*ck?

Bullfighting, too.

There shouldn't be a business tab in the newspaper.  Where is Labor section, subby?

"...three others suffered bruises in a tense fifth bull run."

Do they have a tension meter out there? I would like to buy one, because the doc said I must manage my tension.

It's usually in the back along with the lost pets and free mattresses.

Not talking classifieds.  Talking about the labor section.  Used to be a thing.
