Alaska rodeo promoter gored by bull at his own event

The co-founder of Rodeo Alaska is recovering after he was gored -- but still managed to win a prize -- at his own event.

The Anchorage Daily News reports 43-year-old Frank Koloski was competing in the "double mugging" event on Saturday.

In that contest, one cowboy on a horse ropes a steer while another on foot tries to wrestle the animal to the ground.

Koloski says the bull's horn punctured his stomach and went in 4 1/2 inches.

He says he tried to trot out of the arena afterward, but got lightheaded and fell. An ambulance took him to a hospital.

Koloski says he has been gored before, but never at his own rodeo.

He underwent surgery and is recovering.

He won the event, which gave him a $1,000 cash prize and a belt buckle.
