The man was merely a spectator at the festival and did not run for the animal when the bulls were released, but was pushed and guarded in a field.

Spain is known for its bull runs that are held throughout the country in the summer months.

The most famous takes place during the San Fermin festival in Pamplona in northern Spain, where hundreds of people from all over the world come to run through the streets of the city at their own risk for bulls.

Eight people were honored and 35 were injured this year at the Pamplona festival, made famous worldwide by Ernest Hemingway & # 39; s novel & The Sun Also Rises & # 39; from 1926.
