The True or False trivia statement for August 17, 2013 was:
Spain has the Running of the Bulls. New Zealand has the Running of the Sheep.

The answer is …

TRUE!

The Running of the Sheep happens during a traditional kiwi country fair called The Great NZ Muster.

“It may not be Pamplona, and there are no charging bulls, but in the best Kiwi tradition, each year Te Kuiti puts on its own show with the Great New Zealand Muster and the Running of the Sheep. The danger quotient is low and the fun quotient is high as a flock of sheep is released to stampede down the town’s main street.” ~ AA Travel :: 101 Must-Do’s for Kiwis
