Bulls inflicted injuries on 200 persona at the Zapote fairgrounds and on 274 persons at the Centro de Eventos Pedregal from Christmas until Sunday. These are the totals reported by the Cruz Roja.
Of these, 42 persons were hospitalized from Zapote and 22 from Pedregal, the majority victims of bulls. In all, Cruz Roja workers handled 352 patients in Zapote and 296 at Pedregal, the aid agency said.
There were no deaths reported this year as a result of the unique Costa Rican style bullfights that pit amateurs against mature bulls.
