VIDEO: The Bulls Are Running In Pamplona

If possibly getting trampled by a large, angry animal with horns is your kind of thing, here is this year's first video from the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. The Associated Press swears it was a "relatively clean start" and that the Red Cross says only four people were hospitalized today with "bumps, bruises or scrapes":

As AP adds:

People came from all over the world to test their bravery and enjoy nonstop street parties. Spanish Television said about 2,000 people took part in the first of eight runs at the famed San Fermin festival, made famous by Ernest Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises.
