Hats off to
officials in the Arizona town of Cave Creek for revoking a permit sanctioning
a bull run when the organizers failed to
procure sufficient insurance coverage. This may be enough to stop the event,
since it means that liability for any injuries now becomes the responsibility
of the promoter and the owner of the local ranch where the run is supposed to
Pamplona, the bull runs end in cruel bullfights.
PETA had contacted
the mayor and town council and let them know that modeling an event after Pamplona’s annual bull run would be cruel
and unsafe. Bulls would be antagonized into racing at breakneck speed, which
would put them as well as participants and spectators at risk.
Please thank Cave Creek officials for taking public safety and
cruelty to animals seriously.
