An angry bull attempts to get the upper hand in a battle with a rival by using its horn to poke him in the eye.<br />
<br />
The two powerful, 1,500lb (680kg) African buffalo bulls try to show each other who is boss, grappling with their sharp horns.<br />
<br />
As the pair fight it out, one of the young males jabs his horn into his foe's eye, using his new found grip to pull his head back.<br />
<br />
Airline pilot Karen Blackwood captured the painful moment while taking pictures at Mjejane Game Reserve in the southern Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa.<br />
