Pamplona – running of the bulls from League Against Cruel Sports on Vimeo.

Last year the League Against Cruel Sports visited the festival of San Fermín in Pamplona to witness the cruel reality of the encierro or running of the bulls. What many people do not realise is that the bulls are chased through the streets directly to the bull ring where they will be killed later that day. The festival is now a popular tourist destination with many companies promoting it as a fun holiday for the thrill seeker, however the reality is very different.

We are urging people not to support bullfighting by attending the Pamplona Bull run so please watch this video now and then share it with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter using the links below.

Running of the bulls

Comments Off on Running of the bulls

The running of the bulls, the most famous, is that of the seven-day festival of Sanfermines in honour of  San Fermín in Pamplona.

I’ll say again, I have no sympathy whatsoever for those who wish to risk life & limb, it’s their choice”, I only feel for the poor bulls who get injured whilst forced to run on cobbled stone, into the the ring of death!

Thousands dashed through Spanish Pamplona for a bull run at the San Fermin fiesta, an event that ushers in Spain’s summer party season. Several runners were knocked to the ground and some were trampled on by the animals weighing more than 1,100 pounds (500 kilograms) but there were no gorings or life-threatening injuries. The daily run is the highlight of the 9-day street drinking festival, and comes after a full day and night of hard partying. The bulls will be killed in the evening in the bull ring, and their meat served up in Pamplona’s restaurants.

“I think the above says it all, hard partying, drinking etc. Yes, many men feel invincible after a hard night on the pop”…it’s just a shame the animals have to suffer for it”

Then there’s the free for all bull fight, where everyone wants to be a hero!

“Idiots! I only feel sorry for the bulls that had to endure the abuse & the horses that were put in harms way. If this isn’t barbaric brutal abuse, I don’t know what is!”
