According to local reports they wanted to ‘give voice to the millions of animals who are abused and killed’ in the trade’.

They claimed that 32 million animals are slaughtered in the EU for fur every year.

Last year, topless campaigners from the same group wore horns and covered themselves in fake blood in the streets of Pamplona to protest against annual bull runs.

Anima Naturalis and PETA campaigners stripped down to their black pants and daubed themselves in anti-cruelty slogans.

Wearing fake horns, they also threw red powder into the air to symbolise what they regard as unnecessary and cruel bloodshed during the annual festival which attracts hundreds of thousands of people from around the world.

The San Fermin festival sees ‘contestants’ run through the streets whilst taunting the bulls. 

The protest rally called for ‘a San Fermin without blood’ and the abolition of bullfighting. 

The animal campaigners have carried out the protests in Pamplona over the last 14 years.
