Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

4th "Encierro" of 7 (traditional bull run to lead the bulls to the arena, made famous in the English world through Hemmingway´s novel "The Sun Also Rises") did not go well this morning, sad day for the fiestas...

One bull, by the name of "Capuchino" of the "Jandilla" Ranch (known for its agressive bulls), toppled over and got separated from the herd, when getting up he started to attack anything around him.

Result: One 17 year old dead and 7 injured (one 71 year old US American in critical state). These beasts with the rasor sharp horns *are* dangerous 500 kilos when going for you... The death rises the overall death toll in the whole hisotry of the fiestas to 15.

The experts on the morning shows claim there are too many people running at the Encierros of San Fermin that have no clue about the rules (like to not touch the bulls, e.g.) or about bulls in general, mainly US American runners, and that many are not in the physical shape or age to confront the runs.
