In small villages throughout Spain the traditional running of the bulls is transformed into an event that takes place several times a year. They call this "Encierros" which means enclosed, because they close streets in a loop so as to ensure the bulls in most cases cows don't have any other route than to turn in circles while people try to escape their pointy horns. Whether it be the village yearly holidays or other holidays they are always associated to religious beliefs, saints, holy virgin and other divinities are all pretext to get out on the streets and celebrate. In the smaller villages, the bulls are replaced by cows. But don't let that fool you, they may be smaller then bulls, but they are, faster, meaner and their horns are so much pointier, almost dagger like in some cases.

No animals or humans were hurt in the making of this movie
But my 5D Mark II was tipped over when a cow passed by
too close and the horn crossed the boards protecting me and
touched the tripod and tipped the camera.
