(Newser) – Charging bulls gored two Spaniards and trampled seven during the second of eight bull runs in the San Fermin festival in Pamplona yesterday. One of the men gored was a bull herder appointed by the festival to keep the run orderly. None of the injured was killed, although one was rushed to a hospital in a neck brace and another had arm surgery.

The bulls were Miuras, weighing in at some 1500 pounds, the largest fighting breed in Spain and known for their power and grace. As they charged down the cobblestone route, two of the bulls fell and turned on the runners. "People stumble and fall in front of you but you have to keep running," said one American.
