RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A planned bull run in Southern California could be more bull than run.

Riverside County officials said Friday they haven’t granted permission for the Pamplona-style event to be held in June at an equestrian center near the city of Temecula.

Authorities say no permit application has been submitted and there are difficult-to-overcome concerns about safety and planning for an event that could draw 5,000 people.

The event is promoted by The Great Bull Run, which has held runs in Virginia, Georgia and Texas. Co-founder Rob Dickens tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise (https://bit.ly/LFSIOu ) that the company will work with the county to obtain approval.

Dickens says if that’s not possible, people who’ve already bought tickets will get refunds.
