Stop The Great Bullrun - Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA

The event The Great Bull Run is scheduled to take place July 26, 2014 at Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA. Their website is: http://www.thegreatbullrun.com/. This would actually allow people to pretend they’re in Spain's Running of the Bulls and have the potential to injure or kill animals and people. Their first event that took place on August 24, 2013 in Virginia had 2 people hospitalized and included several people injured by a drone video recording the event, which crashed into the crowd.

We are hoping to sway the City of Pleasanton to not approve their application for a permit for this event, as this is what was a success for Lake Elisnore, CA in getting The Great Bull Run denied into their area as seen in this article: Lake Elsinore City Manager Steers Away from Bull Run Event (http://www.pe.com/local-news/riverside-county/lake-elsinore/lake-elsinore-headlines-index/20131106-lake-elsinore-city-manager-steers-away-from-bull-run-event.ece).

We all know this causes great stress and possibly could hurt the animals or worse. They don't have a voice in the matter, so we need to be that voice for them. Just like in Spain you know this is a tradition and we don't want this becoming one here in America. People in Spain are now considering now that it might be too barbaric of a tradition for today. This is not fair to the animals, not safe for us and something we do not want to become a part of our culture today.
