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!
We certainly don't condone the act of bullfighting! We find it pretty uncool to run an animal around before killing it.
But it definitely is something many people are fond of–especially in Spain!
Which is why people are freaking when they realized that Youtube is taking down the gory parts of bull fights. The parts where there is no blood are still on there, but any slayings are down indefinitely!
Youtube spokespeople said:
Being a rodeo clown is not the most fun job…wait…who are we kidding…being a rodeo clown has to suuuuuuccck!
So when a rider falls down after trying ride an angry bull (duh), the rodeo clown has to "distract" the bull so the rider can stay safe.
But an angry bull is going to STAY angry..and this one bucks the clown nearly into the stands…
But miraculously…this acrobatic clown lands on his FEET!!!
His underwear is prolly a different color…but he's still alive!
Over the weekend, a semitrailer packed with 32 bulls being driven by drivers Travis Carr and Bryan Martin BANGED into a tree on the I-75 in Florida, and three bulls escaped — which led to a chase down and unfortunately a shooting of the animals.
The bulls that stayed inside the trailer were transported into another truck with portable metal fences by cowboys and veterinarians.
Florida Highway Patrol Master Sgt. Nick Causey said:
“The semi was southbound and, from what people told us, a tire blew out. It ran onto the shoulder and into the treeline, which ripped the trailer. Several of the cows got out and were along the shoulder. It could have been dangerous but there were no other accidents.”
Martin noted that he and Carr were hauling the bulls from Evant, Texas, to Indiantown.
After the accident, Travis was sadly hospitalized, but Bryan came out without a scratch.
Only good thing about this CRAY occurrence is that no one else got hurt!!
