One man was gored in the leg and seven people treated for minor injuries in this year’s San Fermin festival in Spain, which featured fewer runners after overnight rain left the streets more treacherous than usual.

今年的西班牙聖費爾明節,因連夜大雨使得街頭比平常還危險,現身的奔跑者也更少,1名男子腿部被牛角刺傷,還有7名男子輕傷接受治療。

The 875-metre sprint from the pen to Pamplona’s bull ring by specially-bred animals chasing red-scarved runners through the city’s cobbled streets is a central part of the nine-day festival in the northern city of Pamplona.

這段從圍欄到潘普洛納鬥牛場的875公尺短跑,由專門飼養的牛隻在該城市鵝卵石路上追逐著帶著紅巾的奔跑者,是潘普洛納這個北部城市9天慶典的重頭戲。

Wednesday’s run featured bulls from the Nuñez del Cuvillo ranch and lasted just 2 minutes 32 seconds. The festival ends on Thursday.(Reuters)

週三的奔牛活動是以努涅斯德庫維略牧場的牛隻為號召,僅持續2分32秒。該慶典週四結束。(路透)
