The recordings of the event showed that the bull Collado caught on at the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas, an arena in Madrid.
According to the Spanish newspaper El Pais the beast already had a sword in the nose of the bullfight.
Collado and the bull were seen in a short distance, while the hunter, waving a different sword, held up a red cape before the animal jumped to its legs.
The hunter was almost hung upside down when the bull grabbed him with his horns before finally falling to the ground.
Two other people immediately rushed to the stage and used their own red caps to lure the bull named Santonero I away from the affected hunter.

Bullfighting festivals are a popular part of Spanish culture, but animal activists say they are cruel and want them to be banned.
Earlier this year, a 74-year-old man was killed by a 1,150 pound bull at the traditional Toro Embolao event in Vejer, Cadiz.
The victim, named as local resident Juan José Varo, tried to get to safety by reducing a nearby wall, but was beaten on the bull's path.
Despite desperate attempts to lure it away, the bull returned and attacked the retiree twice and left him with deadly injuries.
