Do the bulls get hurt?

During the Bull Run (encierro) the bulls usually do not get hurt. They may bruise themselves if they slip and fall. On the evening of the Bull Run at 6:00 p.m., the bulls are killed during the Bullfights in the bullfight arena (Plaza de Toros). Particularly brave bulls may be pardoned by the audience, allowing them to live as a sementar to perpetuate a great race of bulls and to die a natural death, but this rarely happens.
