This report is missing the most tense moment of this year's San Fermines festival.
I love bull fighting but not fighting between man and bull. Only I like bull fighting. In Nepal Taruka, Nuwakot is famous for bull fighting, every year the occasion of makkar sankranti it falls.
What a fantastic adventure sucks
What a pic ! Really amazing.
Greeting from the Himalaya
Amazing game I realize it is a "tradition" but some traditions NEED to be changed! It is just wrong and gross and disgusting!
wow same game as nepal's animals fighting games competition.
Amazing game, but sad at the same time.
Bullfighting is cruel and disgusting! I realize it is a "tradition" but some traditions NEED to be changed! It is just wrong and gross and disgusting!
@Javier_Villar ¿a que sí?
I am pretty sure the bulls are not chasing the runners its the other way around. Disgusting and cruel.
Pequeños hombres mustached que tratan de incrementar su masculinidad acosando un toro. Es menos barbárico que el toro 'enfrentamientos', pero bastante tonto. Aun si es una tradición, me pegaré con un deporte que requiere el talento extraño y la capacidad.
Little mustached men trying to boost their masculinity by harassing a bull. It's less barbaric than bull "fighting" but pretty silly. Even if it is a tradition, I'll stick with a sport that requires unusual talent and ability.
This report is missing the most tense moment of this year's San Fermines festival. On Saturday, the second-to-last day of the "encierro" or running of the bulls, there was a pileup of runners right at the door of the bullfighting ring. The bulls ran right into the stuck runners.
You have to be a brave man to kill a brave bull with a sword. But you can be a coward and kill a deer, a bear or a wolf with a rifle. ¿How many animals are shot down every year in USA? Their number is by far larger than the number of brave bulls killed in a season of "corridas". People have to consider their own cruelty before blaming the cruelty in others.
The animal in the photo is not a bull but a little cow (a "vaquilla"). Vaquillas are freed for enjoyment of revelers. These animals are not killed, since they are "run" plenty of times in different fiestas and places. Brave bulls live in total freedom in ample ranges and their live (and death) is much better than the live and death of the carrle we eat every day. Please, do excuve my very bad English.
Why is Time/CNN glorifying the ritual torture and mutilation of animals for entertainment? Bullfighting is a brutal activity that is outlawed in most of the world. How about a little bit of real journalism here?
I'm rooting for the bulls. If anyone elects to put themselves in the path of raging bulls who are probably scared to death as they are taunted and teased by multitudes of Neanderthals lining the streets then they get what they are asking for.
@moebes I want to do that one day.
@claudlemire If you go run with the Bulls at Strathmore I'll be in the stands offering advice...
Stop promoting this drunken savage ritual, please!
Doesn't everyone get that these bulls are sentient and are stabbed to death by the end of the day in the ring??!!! Animal cruelty is immoral.
@brandonpruitt11 hahaha why didn't we!?
Really it's great photo and i like to watch that groups around bulls in the streets more than the sport in bullring.
@TIME Wonderful pictures that gives people an accurate reflection of the mood and complexity behind Pamplona's San Fermin Festival.
@FJGoodall @moebes And you deserved to be gored to death if you do.
@FJGoodall Most fun trip I've ever taken! A great way to celebrate a "big" birthday.
@AllegedlyOld I'll send my body double.
@AllegedlyOld And I shall be standing right beside you : )
same. in the streets it's actually fun to watch. in the ring it's a cruel slaughter
@scotty2smithy @TIME First time I've heard cruelty described as 'complex'.
@moebes @FJGoodall Oh yeah, murdering animals for your own enjoyment, that's just fabulous. What a scum you are.
@claudlemire Come on... like you can be copied!
@AllegedlyOld Awwww : )
