Man's Selfie With Bulls May Lead to USD 4000 Fine

A participant runs in front of Jandilla's bulls as he takes a "selfie" (photograph of himself) during the fifth bull-run of the San Fermin Festival in Pamplona, northern Spain, on July 11, 2014.

London:  A daredevil participant in the running of the bulls festival in Spain may be slapped with a USD 4,100 fine after he took an extremely dangerous selfie by snapping himself inches from a group of charging animals.

The man was taking part in the San Fermin festival, in which the bulls charge through the street of the Spanish city of Pamplona on eight consecutive days.

According to the organisers, if anyone seriously disturbs the encierro (running of the bulls) and puts other people's lives in danger by filming or taking pictures while running with the bulls, they will have to pay USD 4,100 fine, 'The Local' reported.

Three people have already been fined. One of them had surpassed a security line whereas another filmed the bull run with a drone.

The San Fermin fiesta, a mix of daily bull runs and alcohol-fuelled celebrations, attracts thousands of revellers.

According to the report, the event has seen 15 people killed since 1911, when record keeping began.

The last death was five years ago, when a Spanish man was gored.
