Running Of The Bulls In Dade City, FL March 8, 2014. You can participate or simply watch. Over 10,000 people have participated at several events around the country.The owners say that no-one has been hurt except for some broken bones. (I'm sure broken bones do hurt). Rob Dickens, one of the organizers, compares it to sky diving.
The Great Bull Run will take place at the Little Everglades Ranch in Dade City at the eastern side of Pasco County. Tickets are $65. to participate in the run, $10. to watch. Dickens assures the public that the bulls are specially trained by cowboys and do not get hurt. The bulls will arrive from their home in Kentucky today. The bulls horns are dulled for the running.
BTW, did you know that bulls are color-blind, so any color article waved in front of them will make them run.
Did you also know that bulls in the Pamplona running are killed after the run, these are not. The organizers say the bulls will not be abused to make them run. They will run the track several times with riders on horseback before the people runs. The Great Bull Run has received threats from several animal rights organizations.
A Spanish-style Tomato Royale (tomato wars) is planned for after the bull run.
Little Everglades Ranch is located at 17951 Hamilton Road, Dade City, FL. I will not be attending this event so do not expect pictures of it.
