It takes a certain kind of person for this.
Two Americans and one Briton were gored by bulls on Tuesday during the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. The famous running — which takes place at the annual San Fermin Festival — claimed eleven total injuries, most from falls and scrapes.
The nine-day festival — which features daily bull runs — attracts thousands of tourists to the small Spanish town, with hundreds every year choosing to run with the bulls through the city's narrow, cobblestone streets.
The gored runners were Mike Webster, a 38-year-old man from Florida, as well as an 27-year-old from California identified only as D.M.O. in documents, and a 30-year-old Brit identified only as A.B.O.
Ch-ch-check out crazy video of the bull run (below):
When you sign up for an event that involves being chased by several angry bulls for half a mile, you have to know that the chances of getting injured are pretty darn high!
Unless, of course, your name is Bill Hillmann!
Why, you ask? It might have something to do with the fact that "Buffalo" Bill is considered one of the top bull runners out of the U.S. and actually co-wrote a book titled Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona!
When a Florida sheriff's deputy spotted an elderly bull fallen on its side in a river, she immediately sprung into action.
Deputy Christina Ammons dove into alligator infested water and held the bull's head above the surface until help arrived.
She had to wait for 45 minutes until
Pamplona, Spain is really known for one thing: the running of the bulls!
But every death-defying, thrill seeker might not have the money to make it all the way to Europe.
So the bulls are coming to America!!
Brad Scudder and Rob Dickins, two Americans, have already gotten 20,000 U.S. citizens to shell out the $35 bull running fee.
They're bringing bull runs to ten U.S. cities!!
The difference between the Spanish bull runs and the American version will be two major changes for the better…
The course will have cutouts where slow runners can duck to the side to avoid the stampede and the bulls won't be run into a matador arena to be killed.
The bulls will simply return to the rodeo circuit.
The Humane Society obviously opposes the event and the U.S.D.A. is "carefully examining this issue."
Check out the video (above) to learn some more and watch a reporter narrowly escape death by bulls!!
We previously mentioned that the New York Jets' coach Rex Ryan has a bit of an odd taste in what excites him.
We guess coaching an NFL isn't enough of a thrill for him…
So he went running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain!
He didn't just run once, either, he ran twice!!
A team official said:
Hopefully this will lead to even MORE cities joining forces against bullfighting!
Three amazing cities in Mexico have pledged to ban bullfighting and to end the disgusting practice of killing bulls for sport!
Those cities are Fortín de las Flores, Xalapa and Boca del Río - lets give them a proverbial round of applause!
