Spanish authorities say a man died from his injuries after being gored by a bull at a festival on Saturday.
The incident occurred in Pobla de Farnals, in the Valencia region. The man was gored in the side by a bull named Cocinero, according to reports.
The man, whose identity has not been released, died after arriving at a local hospital.
“The bulls are released into the streets and the runners rush in front of them, in a tradition that takes place every year in more than 1,820 Spanish municipalities, according to a recent investigation by animal rights groups AnimaNaturalis and CAS International “, reports Reuters.
Despite protests from dozens of animal rights activists, bull-running festivals remain very popular and there is no sign of their popularity waning.
