CHICAGO (CBS) — A Chicago man, who was gored in Spain’s Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain, says he will be back at it next week.

35-year-old Bill Hillman was hospitalized in stable condition. He was injured when a bull thrust its horn into Hillman’s backside and flipped him onto the street. He says he was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s ‘The Sun Also Rises.’


“It’s a special, crazy adventure, but I knew I would run again. I’m already walking and jogging so I can make it back to the streets here in Pamplona,” Hillman said. “There’s a lot of magic out here in Pamplona. I’m obsessed with it — Spanish fighting bulls.”

This isn’t Hillman’s first encounter with a bull. He was also gored three years ago at the San Fermin festival.
