Spain: 4 injured in Guadalajara running of the bulls

Associated Press Associated Press 17/09/2016

MADRID — Four people have been injured during the third running of the bulls in the Spanish town of Guadalajara, northeast of Madrid.

City officials said the injured included a 25-year-old man who was gored by a bull. They said the man was injured in his leg and had undergone surgery, but couldn't give any more details about his condition.

The other three people were injured whilst running.

Bull runs, or "encierros," are a traditional part of festivals across the country. The bulls run to the bullfighting arena before they face a matador later in the day.

The Guadalajara bull runs come just days after anti-bullfighting activists clashed with local enthusiasts in the town of Tordesillas, where a centuries-old festival involving the gory spearing of a bull has been banned.
