COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A 69-year-old mid-Missouri woman is hospitalized with serious injuries after being attacked by a bull.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (https://bit.ly/1qOngg6 ) reports that the woman was injured Thursday afternoon in Boone County. Authorities say the woman and her husband were in a pasture at their home with the bull, which they own, when it turned on her.

The woman was flown to University Hospital in Columbia with severe lacerations to her head and right leg, several broken ribs and internal bleeding. Southern Boone County Fire Protection District spokesman Price Nichols says her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The woman’s name has not been released. Her husband was not hurt.
