Encierro. July 13. Dry ground, sunny skies and no serious injuries
The seventh encierro of San Fermín (July 13) with Adolfo Martín Andrés bulls from Cáceres took place on a sunny, dry morning with a massive group of runners and no serious injuries.
The encierro lasted two minutes and 52 seconds, and the Red Cross transferred only four people to the hospital complex of Navarra and, later, another for injuries suffered from the heifers after the bulls had been taken to their corrals.
The bulls ran in a direct line up the slope of Santo Domingo until Mercaderes when two animals became separated from the herd and took the lead.
Shortly after the curve of Mercaderes, one of the Adolfos pushed a runner aside with the side of his horn and continued on.
Four of the six bulls arrived at the ring together, and seconds later, the last two that had caused panic in the stretch between Telefónica and the entrance, to the ring were guided into the ring by shepherds or herdsmen.
In everyone´s mind was last year´s encierro when a pile-up formed at the entrance of the ring, leaving several runners injured.
