(Newser) – The final day of Spain's running of the bulls has, not exactly surprisingly, ended in even more injuries. Most seriously: a 23-year-old Australian woman is in "very grave" condition in hospital after being gored in the back by a huge Miura bull outside the bull ring entrance, the AP reports. The woman, identified only as J.E., suffered rib fractures and lung damage. According to an expert on the San Fermin festival, only two other woman have ever been gored during the recent history of the event. Four men were also sent to hospital today—a 39-year-old from California, a 23-year-old from Madrid, and two locals—but they only suffered from cuts and bruises.

Good! This event is for men, not for penis-envying women.

Back home we have a saying "If you mess with the bull, you get the horn"
