Pamplona Bull Run

Ok, completely off topic, but you can only handle so many jihadis every day, right? Yesterday the San Fermin festival in Pamplona kicked off, during which bulls are chased through the tiny streets of the city towards the arena where later in the day they face certain death at the hands of bull fighters.

I've never understood this, to me it is absolutely cruel, and astonishing to see that the Spanish would treat their national animal this way. Imagine Americans hunting bald eagles every summer!

I hate to admit it, but I never thought PETA and I would be on the same side of an argument!
