Man Gored During Running of the Bulls Wrote a Book About Surviving Running With Bulls


The Running of the Bulls is still a thing that takes place annually in Pamplona, Spain. It is 2014. Anyway, one of the people who was gored while running with the bulls this week was Bill Hillmann, a guy from Chicago who previously contributed a chapter to an e-book called, “How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona.” From the Chicago Tribune:

A former Chicago boxing champion, Hillmann is a veteran of the running of the bulls. His chapter in the 2014 e-book about the event offers frank advice to would-be bull runners that ranges from shoe selection to which parts of the course are appropriate for beginners.

The only real tip to avoid getting gored by a bull is to not eff around with bulls. Though Charles Darwin would never say that out loud.

The animal that gored him Wednesday was the heaviest of the morning’s six bulls, weighing around 1,300 pounds. Hillmann said there were no hard feelings between him and the beast.

“I don’t hold a grudge,” he said. “That animal, it was a beautiful bull. And if I wouldn’t have been pushed and tripped up and fallen down with him, I would have a great run with that bull.”

The bull is not holding a grudge either because it does not have the ability to do so. Hillmann hopes to run with the bulls again next year.
