Paul Eisenberg is a weekly columnist on the American Fox News. com channel and his speciality is travel and leisure activities. His column - Away Game - deals this week about risk-taking leisure activities and he refers explicitly to the Pamplona Running of the bulls. Under the title "Running with the bulls in Pamplona, or how to almost get gored", Eisenberg describes the account told him by Victoria White, public relations manager at Ludus Tours.
In addition, the author himself has been interviewed on Fox News by Martha MacCallum, the co-presenter of America´s Newsroom which included images from the running of the bulls. Here he assures Martha Maccallum that a theory exists which states that when we travel abroad we become different people. However, Eisenberg believes that even when we are being responsible, there are some situations of extreme danger that cannot be controlled, and one such is the Pamplona Running of the Bulls.

Running with the bulls in Pamplona, or how to almost get gored, part two
Running with the bulls is a quintessential and almost sacred event for the citizens of Pamplona, Spain, but as Ludus Tours public relations manager Victoria Whyte puts it, "these bulls are not mindless cows, they are aggressive animals that will not think twice about goring you. People who run with the bulls are a whole different 'breed.'" One of her tour group clients, a "runner" that I'll call Lucky, was on his second day of running when he "felt what he believed to be a runner very close behind him," Whyte recalls, though it was in fact a feisty solo bull. Upon visiting a photo shop later, Lucky spotted images of his run. One photo showed other runners giving the bull and Lucky a wide berth, with Lucky's hand "resting on the bull's head right between the horns. The other photograph shows the Bull's left horn between [Lucky's] right side and his arm. The horn is digging into this arm, but not breaking the skin." Whyte adds that while Lucky "came to Pamplona to run every day, after that experience it was the last time he ran with the bulls."
