"Sometimes the bull, he wins"
A female bullfighter was gored twice by the same bull while trying to kill it in a Mexico City bullring.
A 1,090lb-bull named Gamusino threw Karla de los Angeles up over his head on Sunday as she went in to kill it at the Plaza de Toros de Mexico, BBC reported.
de los Angeles was treated by medics before going back to fight, when she was gored a second time by Gamusino, according to the news outlet.
According to the BBC, cuts of 4.7inches and 3.9inches were made to the 25-year-old bullfighter's thigh and gluteal muscles during the battle.
Federico Dominguez, de los Angeles' assistant, was also gored by the massive bull, BBC reported.
Gamusino injured two different assistants as well as a farmer after he leaped over the ring and went into a walkway, according to AFP. One of the assistants reportedly had a concussion and is in serious condition.
5,000 people went to the bullring on Sunday, as part of a ten-day event, the wire service reported.
Speaking to Picture Radio in Spanish, de los Angeles said 'I'm sad because I could not cut off an ear and I could not kill a second bull.'
De los Angeles also stated that she and three people that Gamusido wounded are in the hospital.
'It was [a very bloody run], there were many mishaps, thank God, so far as it goes, we're fine,' she told Picture Radio. 'You have to accept it as it is, to recover and what comes.'
de los Angeles' Facebook shows that in addition to being a female bullfighter, she is also the mother of a young girl.
AFP reported that it was the first time three female Mexican bullfighters participated in the event at the Plaza de Toros de Mexico.
WHO THE HELL in his RIGHT MIND thought that putting a WOMAN in a ring with a half-ton of VERY RARE STEAK was a GOOD IDEA?!?!
Two female Mexican bullfighters, one a single mother competing for the first time in three years, have been gored in a bloody annual festival.
The two fighters, Karla de los Angeles and Lupita Lopez, were taking part in an all-women event called the "festejo de damas", alongside Hilda Tenorio. The event was staged at one of the world's biggest bullrings, Plaza Mexico.
De los Angeles, one of Mexico's best-known female bullfighters, was fighting for the first time since she withdrew from the sport in 2011 to look after her young daughter.
Before the fight, she had spoken of her dream of becoming a matador - a master bullfighter - and made national headlines by saying "being a mother is not an impediment".
During her fight, the 25-year-old was struck twice by the bull, known as Gamusino. The first injury came when the animal tossed the fighter over its head as she went for the killer blow. Despite the injuries, De los Angeles managed to resume the battle, only to be badly gored once again shortly after the resumption.
The horns of the bull - which reportedly weighed around 495kg - pierced De los Angeles' thigh to the depth of 12cm as well as leaving her with a 10cm cut across her gluteal muscles.
According to the BBC, one of the fight assistants, Federico Dominguez, was also attacked by the bull while attempting to help De los Angeles. The severity of Dominguez's injuries remains unknown but they are not thought to be life-threatening.
Lopez, meanwhile, was injured while going for the kill in her own fight. The bull gored her in the right thigh, leaving her to require hospital treatment. Again, it is not known how severe her injuries are.
|That's gonna leave a mark...|
A young man stopped at a local restaurant after a day of roaming around in Mexico.
While sipping his tequila, he noticed a sizzling, scrumptious-looking platter being served at the next table.
It looked good.
It smelled good.
He asked the waiter, "What is that you just served?"
The waiter replied, "Ah senor, you have excellent taste! Those are bull's testicles from the bull fight this morning. A delicacy!"
The visitor, though momentarily daunted, said, "What the heck, I'm on holiday down here! Bring me an order!"
The waiter replied, "I am so sorry senor. There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight each morning. If you come early tomorrow and place your order, we will be sure to save you this delicacy!"
The next morning, the man returned, placed his order, and then that evening was served the one and only special delicacy of the day.
After a few bites, and inspecting the contents of his platter, he called to the waiter and said, "These are delicious, but they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve yesterday!"
The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied, "Si, Senor. Sometimes the bull he wins."
