What a load of bull

• Unlike the tourists who make fools of themselves every year in Pamplona, the bulls are running for their lives but have zero chance of succeeding ("Three tourists gored in Pamplona bull run", July 9).

The same magnificent animals who slip and slide on the cobbled streets during the much-shamed 'running of the bulls' are later attacked by as many as eight men and repeatedly stabbed by a variety of spears, spikes and daggers, causing tremendous pain and blood loss until the matador finally stabs the exhausted animal with a sword.

Tormenting animals is not civilised entertainment -- it is something that belongs in the Dark Ages.
