A man taking part in the Houston Bull run put his life on the line when he took the time to take a selfie and a video with the animals chasing after him.

His photo made it on the front page of the website, Reddit as well as the Houston Press.

Over 3,000 people took part in the event with only one person being treated for scrapes, bruises and a concussion.

Organizers of the event got the idea from the Spanish bull-running event and wanted to bring the spectacle closer to home.
