A toro de fuego (“fire bull”) or toro embolado (“bull in balls”) is festive activity in which a bull that has balls of flammable material attached to its horns, which are lighted, is set free in the streets at night so that people dodge it to have fun. This activity is held in a number of Spanish towns during their local festivals. In recent years, animal rights campaigners have attempted to stop this from happening due to the cruelty to the animal. The live bull is now often substituted with a bull-resembling metal frame held by a runner and that is set alight.
