An 18-year-old was gored in the stomach during an evening bullrun in the Navarra town of Lerin on Sunday evening and died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
In Peñafiel in Castilla y Leon region a local councilor, Jose Alberto Peñas, 36, was gored during Saturday morning encierro (bull run) when he slipped and fell just as a bull turned around and ran towards him.
On Friday night during an evening ‘bou al carrer’ festival in Museros, Valencia a 32-year-old died after a bull gored him.
The three deaths occurred just hours after another man died from wounds sustained the evening before in Blanca in the southern region of Murcia. Rafael Ibáñez Miñano was gored six times and died on Friday morning.
It has been a particularly bloody year for gorings in Spain. Since the start of the summer nine people have been gored to death during separate fiestas across the country.
Many towns include taurine activites such as running of the bulls as part of their annual fiestas.
Pamplona’s San Fermin, which takes place early July, hosts the largest and most famous running of the bulls fiesta attracting around a million tourists.
