Shocking video shows the moment a man is gored, trodden, and killed by a massive water buffalo. (continue reading for video)
The Vietnamese owner of a competitive buffalo, Dinh Zuan Huong, 46, was trying to make his stock fight another beast at the annual Do Son Buffalo Fighting festival in Hai Phong, Northern Vietnam.
In spite of having trained the animals for 10 years and only lately owning his own for the first time, his skill failed him when the buffalo abruptly turned on him.
The footage shows two of the mammals crashing their massive horns into each other—signifying their stunning power.
Moments later, though, as Dinh is walking across the edge of the field, his own buffalo which he had trained for belligerence suddenly turned the fury onto him, hitting his owner from behind, knocking him to the grass.
