On Wednesday, Bill Hillmann, one of the authors of Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona, was reportedly gored in the leg. His injuries were not life threatening.


Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. Thrill-seekers gathered on the streets of Pamplona, Spain this week for the annual running of the bulls - among them, Bill Hillman, co-author of the book "Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls in Pamplona." It seems that Buffalo Bill tempted fate one too many times - he was gored in the leg during the event. His injuries are not life-threatening, but his co-author told the New York Times, we'll probably need to update the book. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
