Man Who Wrote A Guide On Surviving Pamplona's Running Of The Bulls Gets Injured At The Running Of The Bulls!

| Filed under: ZportzInjuryOuchie!Scary!BullGIFs

Bill Hillmann's expertise couldn\'t save him from injury at Pamplona\'s running of the bulls!

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!

Unfortunately, his knowlege went to waste and this year's running of the bulls in Pamplona as he was one of two people to be gored during the dangerous event!

At least he survived, though, right??

Anyway…

Bill was stabbed in the leg with a bull's horn, but luckily it missed his artery and bone, and he's expected to make a full recovery after he underwent surgery. A Spaniard standing next to him was also stabbed in the chest and was listed as being in "serious" condition.

Luckily Bill will live to tell the tale of his injury at next year's event, however, we think it's time he goes back to his book and re-writes a few chapters!

    Good thing you're not a breaking news outlet because your news is always about two days later then the majority of the world already read the story. Why bother?

    I call this natural selection.

    Saying Bill Hillmann doesn't know enough about bull-running to write on the subject because he got gored is equivalent to saying Ayrton Senna couldn't give advice on driving or Karl Wallenda on highwire walking because they were both killed doing it. Come on.

    Alexander Fiske-Harrison
    Former bullfighter, editor and co-author of Fiesta: How To Survive The Bulls Of Pamplona, along with the Mayor of Pamplona, John Hemingway (Ernest's grandson), Beatrice Welles (Orson's daughter), and various American, Spanish and Basque bull-runners.

    Do your research - Bill obviously did take his own advice and saved himself from further injury by STAYING DOWN when he fell, which in this case was caused by three inexperienced runners actually pushing him into the bull. Had you read the book or did the slightest bit of research you'd know that he did everything right. Just because you write a book on the subject doesn't make you immune to other runners' stupidity.

    You don't know jack sh** Perez Hilton. The book was How to Survive the running, not How to not get gored. Bill is a beast. You're an idiot.
