CAVE CREEK, AZ - The running of the bulls through Cave Creek could still take place, it just wouldn't have the backing of the town.
The Arizona Republic reports Cave Creek officials revoked a permit that would have sanctioned the event.
The decision will not keep the project from moving forward, but it does protect the town's liability.
Mayor Vincent Francia says a special-event permit was revoked because promoter Phil Immordino would not provide sufficient insurance coverage.
Immordino neither agreed to the town's insurance terms nor did he appear at a recent council meeting when concerns about the run
Francia says a running of the bulls in the town north of Phoenix is fitting, but Cave Creek couldn't sanction it under the circumstances and may consider stopping the event because of safety and insurance issues.
Immordino says he's providing $2 million of insurance coverage.
