A Chicago author who co-wrote the book “How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona” was gored Wednesday morning during the Pamplona bull run, the festival’s website reports.

Bill Hillman, 32, tripped and fell while participating in the third run of the weeklong San Fermin festival. The bull, the heaviest of the six animals released, gored him twice in the right thigh. Hillman, who has been running in the festival for over a decade, is said to be in a stable condition. Full story. Time.com

I do not understand why anyone would want to run with the bulls in Pamplona, do you?
