Raging bull gores three at Spanish ‘slaughter’ festival (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Three people have been gored at a traditional bull run in Spain which animal activists have denounced for inflicting “unimaginable” harm on animals.
The week-long Toro Enmaromado sees people run through the streets of Benavente while dragging bulls by a rope.

On Wednesday, three participants were hospitalized after being charged down by Pitarroso, a 620 kilo bull, reported 20 Minutos.

panish political party and animal rights group PACMA has sought to have the event banned because of the severe abuse meted out against the animals.

A statement on the PACMA website provides an eyewitness account to some activities at the festival and describes how bulls are subjected to “unimaginable” suffering before being transferred to a slaughterhouse.

The group say they plan to launch a complaint after claims children and drunk people took part in this year’s event.

At one point the large bull spears two men in a doorway, although it is unclear if these people required hospital treatment.
