San Fermin 2008: The Running Of The Bulls

It´s Spains biggest "fiesta" - 7 days of 24 hours partying - that attracts more than a million & a half of visitors to the Spanish city of Pamplona. One of its main attractions is the running of the bulls, a life long traditional were everyday during the fiesta (7days) at 08.00 the bulls that will serve in the afternoon´s bullfighting session are let loose to run through the streets in direction towards the bullring. Hundreds of individuals risk their lives & run ahead of the bulls ( with the help of San Fermin) to experience the edge of life & death. Many fall as they have no experience or are to drunk to react. Here is the video of todays running, a dangerous affair with many injuried, some lucky not to be dead:
