While underneath the belly of the beast Deutsch says that he tried to roll away from the bull and under a fence when the bull jabbed him right in the calf. On a stretcher Deutsch was taken to the hospital. The puncture wound in Deutschs calf was one inch deep, which apparently isn’t deep enough to stop him from considering running again.

“It’s a beautiful thing watching that herd run. They are like a thunderstorm on those cobblestones. We like to say we are running with our bull brothers,” says Deutsch.
