    Hundreds of amateurs, many in a drunken state, have been testing their bullfighting skills during the Corraleja Festival in Sincelejo, Colombia.

    In dramatic scenes caught on camera, one man was severely gored when an aggravated bull got the best of him, sending his companions scrambling to get him out of the ring.

    During the festival, the novice bullfighters enter the ring without any protective gear to take on the animals in this 150-year-old Colombian tradition.

    Organizers say they have installed new measures to protect participants, but some 48 people have been injured since festivities got underway on January 4.
