I would think blood would be spewing out if it was a real puncture. Not only that there's not a ton of muscle to poke into at the front of your lower leg.

Yahoo reported it with the picture, so I imagine it's real. That would have happened so quickly that there likely wouldn't be time for blood to start spilling out yet. At least that's the best reason I can come up with for the lack of blood.

I guess I'm in the minority here: I'd love to run with the bulls. I would guess that you're far less likely to be killed running with the bulls than driving to work in the morning.

When I was in Spain playing soccer, we witnessed the running of the bulls from our hotel windows, and it really looked like a blast. I'd love to do it.

I've had cousins in Spain run with the bulls. Obviously, they said it's quite the adrenaline rush and as Art said, the chances of getting gored aren't all too bad. Personally, I'd rather not do that and do some other thrill-seeking activity that I actually enjoy (i.e. whitewater rafting), but I can understand it's tradition. I haven't been to Pamplona yet, but I'll make a point to do so for the Running of the Bulls. Sure beats that tomato throwing festival. :-b

The bull running always does a great job in producing a few candidates for the Darwin Awards.

It just catches me as mindless abuse of animals all for the sake of entertainment. I've never witnessed one and I don't know to what extent I can believe the stories I've seen and read, but it certainly appears to me to be a completely unreasonable thing to do. Risking your neck is one thing, if that's what you're into, but the brutality they inflict on these animals is completely unnecessary. If it was just running, fine. But the daggers and spears, some on fire, is just senseless and cruel. I am very much a traditionalist and I love to hunt, but this...I couldn't justify taking part in this.
