Animal Abuse Runs High at the Running of the Bulls

Well of course you take the chance of being gored to death or injured when you choose to run with 6 terrified, man-handled, and taunted bulls. The bulls are forced by stupid humans to run on slippery cobblestone streets at the festival of San Fermin in Pamplona, Spain! So far at this year's inhumane running of the bulls, 16 people ended up in the hospital. A few were gored and some were injured. 6 bulls are forced to run while being chased and jumped on by humans participating in this disgusting event. The yelling and taunting by the spectators lining the streets increases the fear the bulls are made to endure. Every morning for seven days, 6 new bulls are forced to run with human participants. Every evening, the 6 bulls forced to run that morning are killed in the bullfighting ring. Every country has a black mark on it due to animal abuse. Spain has a whopper of a black mark with its running of the bulls and bullfighting! My sympathy lies with the terrified bulls forced to run in this event, not with any human participant who is gored, injured or killed. Humans choose to run with the bulls, and they must reap what they sow.
It's cruelty, plain and simple. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Read more about bullfighting from Vox.com's Dylan Matthews: http://www.vox.com...

Me too! Just signed the petition to end this, and enough public outcry often works to end this abuse.

Terrified bulls are chased through the streets, taunted and provoked before being killed at an annual event in Spain. End this barbaric and bloody tradition which puts both people and animals in danger.

I don't agree with the running of bulls although I did see it once a few years ago...I didn't participate. My main thing is getting bull fighting banned...no need for any blood sports in this day and age. The supporters call it a national tradition same as the supporters of fox hunting did here but some traditions need to stop.

Torturing animals for entertainment does not bode well for any country.

I am not concerned about the humans because they have a choice, but the bulls do not.

Yes, I read about the Americans being injured. Feel sorry for the bulls, but the humans choose to watch or participate, so no sympathy for the humans.

Do I need to state my view on this one @Corbin5 ? What I can't believe is that Spain still allows this absolute stupidity. My thought would be to dress up like a bull (with horns) and go to it. There'd be a hell of a lot more than 16 people in the hospital.

Well, as you know, you and I are ready to deliver blows to those who abuse animals. Since we are not as strong as we used to be, I think we need armor and swords to fight the good fight!

I feel sick now I've watched that video. I went to Spain with my parents when I was a teenager 60 years ago, and we thought we'd go to a bullfight just to see what it was like. We couldn't get out of there quick enough - even my Dad felt sick. It was absolutely horrendous.

Sounds like the stupidest thing in the world. Let me see if I can escape getting gored or trampled by a bull, not to mention the other 1000's of idiots who can trample me also.

I have never understood that sport, if it is a sport. Why put your life at risk to run with the bulls, and why raise bulls to be killed for sport. It's a mystery to me.

Its is really sad to hear about such cruelty to animals everyday. If people did not pay and watch these events, the event holders would have to shut down.. but it seems we humans take such pleasure in taunting and torturing animals.
