Matador Antonio Romero was rushed to hospital after being gored in Mexico City on Monday, according to Zocalo.
The matador ended up with the bull’s horn some 11-inches up his rectum, causing “severe” injuries.
The horrifying moment, which was caught on camera, shows Romero seemingly in control as he attempts to tame the bull with his red cloth, called a muleta.
But something goes wrong as he tries to get the bull to pivot around him.
Romero falls to the ground, the bull makes contact with his arm but he does not have time to brace for the second attack.
The bull lowers its head and takes its terrible revenge on the matador and rams one of its nearly foot-long horns into Romero’s backside.
The goring only ended when other bullfighters ran into the ring to distract the beast and offer assistance to Romero.
In the end, Romero was rushed to a nearby hospital for injuries to his rectal area.
It is not known if he has been discharged yet.
