PAMPLONA, Spain -- The Running of the Bulls is an iconic, almost legendary international event held in Spanish and Latin American countries. The largest event, held in Pamplona, Spain, consists of an 8-day festival in honor of Saint Fermin, leading up to the "running of the bulls." It's a ceremonal practice, though it's rooted in necessity: the tradition originated when Spanish farmers needed to transport their bulls from off-site corrals to the bullring, where they'd eventually be killed.
This year's event took place on July 7, 201 in the streets of Pamplona, Spain. There were no deaths reported.
