Bull News from Pamplona

From “the running of the bulls” in Pamplona comes the news that a charging bull gored a young Spanish man to death Friday at the San Fermin festival.  It was the first such fatality in nearly 15 years. Nine other people were also injured, but 27-year-old Daniel Jimeno Romero from Alcala de Henares (outside Madrid), who was vacationing with his parents and girlfriend, will not be running with the bulls—or anything else—ever again.  He was gored in the neck and lungs by a rogue bull named Capuchino which separated from the pack. The festival ends tuesday.

    It is despicable that the Spaniards still practice and believe in these barbaric entertainments. They should have stayed in one of those prehistoric paintings in the Altamira’s caves. I don’t care about the ones who died. They asked for it. I am concern about the bulls killed in these idiotic practices. The European community MUST press Spain into eliminating these stupid, bloody, and senseless traditions.
