Is this article supposed to generate sympathy for 20-year-old Benjamin Miller, of Georgia?
If he and the 45,000 to 50,000 other people who attended this "Carnaval del Toro" wish to indulge in this barbaric and cruel activity, then they must accept that they run the risk of being injured. There seems to be no reports of any other attendees at this "fiesta, which includes afternoon bullfights and bull-running events" being gored or otherwise injured, which is a pity because a good goring or more is what they all richly deserve.
Any compassion which people may have should be directed towards the Bulls, who have no choice but to take part in this awful spectacle. The message to the "humans" involved is a simple one. You deserve it and so expect no sympathy from me.
