Great Bull Run holds U.S. event
DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) — A bull-running event inspired by the traditional Spanish spectacle is making its U.S. debut.
The Great Bull Run held its first of several events Saturday at a drag-racing strip in Virginia.
Organizers said about 12,000 attended the event, including spectators, and that one minor injury occurred on the final run.
The event is inspired by the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
The president and CEO of the animal protection group, Wayne Pacelle, attended the Virginia event to ensure there was no mistreatment of animals.
Pacelle described the run as boring and a “frat boy event.”
Later runs are planned for six other states.
