Running of the bulls comes to America

Some 3,000 daredevils decked out in white outfits and red scarves dodged bulls at a Georgia horse park to get a taste of the running of the bulls, as made famous in Spain.




Horse riders herded 18 bulls into a fenced course for the event, dubbed the Great Bull Run. Many stood alongside the fence as the bulls ran by, but some tried to sprint with the animals. A few runners fell or were knocked down, but no serious injuries were reported.
