This is the moment a runaway buffalo smashed its way into a restaurant and threw a man into the air in eastern China.
Video filmed in the city of Taizhou in Jiangsu Province on December 31, 2021, shows the animal suddenly running into the restaurant and ramming into a man and knocking him over.
The stricken man, who suffered injuries to his leg, was dragged to safety by his friend while the bull remained in the shop causing further damage to tables and chairs before eventually running away.
Video footage captured the moment a man was thrown into the air by a rampaging buffalo at a restaurant in the city of Taizhou in Jiangsu Province, China, on December 31, 2021
The buffalo’s horns can be seen on the other side of plastic screens at the front of the restaurant before the huge animal bursts in and charges at the man on the right
The footage filmed on December 31 shows two men – one drinking and another on their phone – standing inside the restaurant seconds before the animal is seen appearing behind plastic screens at the front of the building.
The huge buffalo charges straight at the man in a bright-coloured jacket who had been drinking moments before and uses its horns to toss him in the air and throw him down onto the floor.
After he is slammed to the floor, his shocked friend rushes over and drags him to the side next to a table and some chairs, away from the rampaging bull.
For a few seconds, the buffalo remains off camera but banging and crashing can be heard before it returns to the front of the restaurant.
The buffalo smashed up tables and chairs in an adjoining room to the restaurant before running away
With rope hanging from its mouth after reportedly escaping from a butchers moments before it was to be slaughtered, the bull walks around the restaurant and looks out of the window for a few moments.
It then turns and walks into an adjoining room in the restaurant where more banging and crashing can be heard.
Tables and chairs are seen being thrown around the room before the buffalo smashes its way back into the main section of the shop.

After a few seconds staring out of the door, the bull eventually runs through the plastic screens and runs away.
Moments later, the man’s friend is seen running out of the shop in the same direction and then returns to the restaurant alongside a number of other people who inspect the damage and check on the man who was hit by the buffalo.
The man suffered injuries to his leg and was taken to hospital for further treatment.
