A farmer's intervention with an angry bull on the lam nearly ended with him being flattened.

A photographer caught the moment the farmer decided to try capture animal armed only with a stick. The brave, or perhaps unwise encounter happened in the Liangdun village of Nangang township, in China's Anhui province.

The 700-kilogram beast had just escaped from a truck and took exception to having a noose around its neck.

Rearing up, the animal set off after the farmer, who by that point was in full flight through bushes.

The farmer managed to escape unharmed and police were then called in to shoot the bull. It had reportedly attacked several farmers before the December 15 incident.
