Thousands of tourists normally flock from all over the world to take part in San Fermin's most famous festival where a dozen bulls chase hundreds of people dressed in white with red neckerchiefs through the streets of Pamplona in northern Spain.

Revelers in an open arena numbering more than hundreds or as many that have the courage enter into an arena full of wild cows with dangerously looking horns. They are chased around by the cows while they either dodge or run for their lives.

Many get injured and survive while some may not be that lucky. In the picture below is an injured man taken on a stretcher during the running of the bulls. Another is tossed by a wild cow following the third running of the bulls at the San Fermin festival.

The runs start with the release of a rocket, after which the bulls are released onto the streets, and the ‘mozos’ or runners start running.

The route is clearly marked by barricades that keep the animals from escaping into other parts of the city.
