Background: Four men were injured, two seriously, during a bull-run in the Spanish town of Pamplona on July 7. One of those seriously hurt was caught in the leg by a bull's horn at the end of the 325-metre (yard) race in the town's narrow streets. The other injuries were inflicted at the end of the course, as runners and pursuing burst into the ring. The run was part of the week-long San Fermin Festival which marked the start of the annual bull-fighting season. Every year, the festival is marred by a number of serious injuries as hordes taunt the animals, which are set free for the occasion. Most people are quick enough to avoid being trampled or gored to death by the animals, and are bold enough to literally grab the bull by the horns. Some manage to walk out of the ring after being hit by a horn. Others are less fortunate. Every year, the event brings a barrage of protests from the medical profession, and opponents of bullfighting, but their voices have so far been drowned by those who, despite the risks, would rather see tradition live on.
