Run with the bulls without leaving the country!

The Great Bull Run is coming to America! The first run will be held near Richmond, Virginia, on August 24, with about 5,000 people already signed up to sprint through a fenced-in course set up on a drag-racing strip.

The organizers of the Great Bull Run say their event will be safer than the Pamplona festival, where runners are brutally gored every year, and even killed. The course will have built-in “coves” that allow the participants to quickly get out of a bull’s path, while the bulls used will be locally bred and less aggressive than Spanish fighting bulls.

The organizers say their bulls will not be killed or deliberately mistreated. Regardless, the Humane Society is not a fan of the idea.
