Australian government urges against running with the bulls in Pamplona

The federal government is urging Australians thinking about running with the bulls in Pamplona to think again.

THE annual San Fermin Festival and Running of the Bulls in Pamplona  will take place from July 6 to 14.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is reminding Australian tourists the event is dangerous.

“Each year some participants are seriously injured and there have been numerous deaths associated with the event,” DFAT said in a travel bulletin issued on Monday.

“If you decide to participate, you should weigh up the risks of doing so, and understand the consequences if you are injured.”

Some foreigners have also been injured or killed by jumping off fountains during the festival, DFAT said.

“Your travel insurance may not cover you if you participate in high risk activities, such as running with the bulls or jumping off fountains.”
