Shocking footage has emerged showing a matador being attacked by a bull in a bull fight.
The incident, which occurred in Mexico City on Monday, injured matador Antonio Romero severely as the bull pierced its horn in Romero's rectum and butted his lower back side of the body more than once.
The bull named Caporal weighs 1,160 pounds.
The stomach-churning clip shows Romero seemingly in control as he goads the animal with a red cloth, called a muleta.
But something goes wrong as he tries to get the bull to pivot around him. The angry beast rears up, catching him on the arm and knocking him off balance.
As Romero stumbles back in an effort to avoid the bull's deadly horns, the animal throws off the muleta and homes in on its helpless target. Now, with its tormentor on ground, the bull takes revenge.
It mercilessly attacks him, digging in its horns and rolling him across the ground. The goring ends when other bullfighters come to their colleague's aid and distract the animal.
Romero reportedly was rushed to the hospital for urgent treatment. He was not discharged from the hospital till filing of this report.
Footage of a similar incident was shared after a man who was attacked by a bull in Salamanca, Spain, earlier this year. The horrific video shows the man being gored and tossed around like a rag doll during the Carnival of the Bull.
