Bulls from the Núñez del Cuvillo stockbreeder, in Andalusia, took to the streets of Pamplona on Thursday morning, for the seventh and penultimate Running of the Bulls at Sanfermines 2017. The run lasted two minutes and 40 seconds, and would have finished sooner were it not for the complete herd stopping once in the city’s bullring, turning around, before finally heading into their pen.

A total of six people were taken to hospital, two of whom had been gored by the bulls during the run. One man was being treated for a head injury.

Tomorrow, Friday July 14, will see the last run of the fiestas at San Fermín 2017, and will feature animals from the Miura stockbreeder.

The first encierro, or bull run, on Friday saw three injuries and there were two more gorings on Saturday.

Since 1910, 16 people have lost their lives at the encierros.
