The José Escolar bulls will tour the streets of Pamplona for the seventh time. It is the preferred livestock on Saturdays since it has been chosen for that day on five occasions. Saturdays are a day with a lot of people in the race and the day in which the running of the bulls registers the most injuries due to trauma (6.01 per running of the bull) and more injuries due to other circumstances (7.17 per running of the bull).
The Escolar bulls became famous in the Pamplona running of the bulls by becoming the “Curioso” bull in the running of the bulls and riding a good one. You can read the chronicle here which is very “curious”. The following two years, two other bulls returned as well, but it ended with loose bulls completing the race, not like in the first case where the bull returned to the corralillos del gas.
