Rodeo Photographer Sent Flying By Rampaging Bull In Toronto (PICTURES)

These dramatic photos are not what this photographer had in mind.

The man was sent spinning into the air by a rampaging bull during a rodeo in Canada.

With his long-lens camera around his neck, he went flying as the raging animal charged into him at the annual Royal Horse Show in Toronto.

He was supposed to be photographing the rodeo section

Somehow, after a few seconds lying dazed on the ground, he was helped to his feet by onlookers.
