While the victim's injuries are not life-threatening, it could not have been a pleasant experience to encounter the business end of a bull in Kamloops this morning.

Kamloops Fire Rescue rushed to the Campbell Creek neighbourhood at around 10:28 a.m. today, June 28, after a man was injured by a bull.

Crews responded to a property on Dallas Drive where they found the injured man lying in the corral, platoon captain Darryl Cooper said.

"With some broken bones, he was pretty beat up, but nothing life-threatening," Cooper said.

The bull was safely corralled before firefighters arrived, so there was no need for them to handle the animal.

They tended to the patient until paramedics arrived to take him to hospital.
