SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- It's a chaotic scene that plays out each year in Pamplona, Spain and now the running of the bulls could be coming to Minnesota.
Tentative plans call for "The Great Bull Run" to take place in several US cities over the next year including a run in Shakopee on May 10, 2014.
Shakopee's mayor says the deal with Canterbury Park isn't finalized, but he's intrigued.
"I think it's great," says mayor Brad Tabke. "We are a community working on building up our tourism and entertainment and having a diverse amount of it."
Canterbury Park has already begun experimenting with unique events including "Extreme Race Day" in July which featured jockeys riding camels, ostriches and zebras.
Before the bulls arrive, officials from Canterbury Park plan to head to Virginia later this month to see how the first stateside bull run goes.
Organizers of "The Great Bull Run" say the US events will be safer with fenced in courses and built-in escape coves for runners to get out of the way quickly.
Also, the bulls will be less aggressive ranch bulls as opposed to Spanish fighting bulls.
A website has already launched and registration is now underway, but don't expect Shakopee's mayor to take part.
"Absolutely not," says Tabke. "My wife would kill me."
He's leaving this one for the tourists.
