This is the moment a bull gores a festival goer in the bum during a running of the bulls event in northern Spain.

The incident was filmed during a running of the bulls event in the town of Arnedo in the northern Spanish region of La Rioja while the 40-year-old man was trying to outmanoeuvre the bull by giving it the slip, known locally as a ‘recorte’.

The traditional festival was in honour of Catholic martyrs Saints Cosmas and Damian.

In the footage, the victim is seen in the middle of the road, apparently teasing the bull as spectators behind security fences look on from the sidelines.

The 40-year-old man tries to give the stocky animal the slip, but loses his footing and the bull seems to gore him in his behind.

The bull then flips the festival goer in the air before a group of people carry him away.

According to local media, the victim lost consciousness for a moment when the bull sent him crashing to the tarmac.

Reports said the unnamed man initially refused to be attended by the Red Cross medics on the scene, but eventually allowed them to treat the contusions he suffered.

As the man momentarily passed out, paramedics also decided that he should be sent to hospital to check for a possible brain trauma, according to local media.

Reports said he has since been released from hospital.

At the same running of the bulls event over the weekend, another man was gored in the leg by a rampant bull and needed hospital treatment.
