Two gored in Spanish bull run

bullsPamplona, Spain - Fighting bulls gored two young men as the half-ton beasts tore through the winding streets of Pamplona in Spain’s San Fermin festival, officials said. More than a thousand thrill-seekers ran alongside the six bulls and six steers bolting through the streets of the northern city, some daring to get as close as possible to their horns. Eight people were injured, including the two who suffered gorings, in the sixth of eight daily runs of the festival. One bull’s horn struck a 40-year-old man from Pamplona in his side and another skewered a 41-year-old daredevil in the right arm. A 21-year-old Australian suffered a broken nose while his 30-year-old compatriot dislocated an elbow. Others had head injuries, broken bones, bruises and cuts.  More
