Mexico bullfighter, others injured by "smart" bull

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican bullfighter Karla de los Angeles is vowing to return to the ring by mid-January, two days after she and several others were gored by what she described as a "very smart" bull.

The 26-year-old bullfighter suffered a pair of gashes to the thigh and buttock when she was gored twice by the 495-kilogram (1,090-pound) bull Gamusino.

A group of bullfighters' assistants rushed in to carry off the wounded matador, but the bull wasn't done yet.

He chased and gored one of the assistants carrying De los Angeles, and broke the ribs of another.

De los Angeles said the bull "was hunting me. He was a very smart bull."

Another bull in Sunday's fight leapt over the ring wall, crushing a spectator's face.
