Bull gore injuries are a common feature among farmers and revellers in rural India as well as in the West, such as Pamplona, Spain.1 All types of bull gore injuries of varying severity, both penetrating and blunt types, sometimes causing death are described. One such successfully managed case of bull gore injury of abdomen through right femoral triangle, surprisingly sparing the femoral vessels but causing exanguinating contusion and laceration of mesorectum and mesentery and evisceration of small bowel through femoral triangle is being reported to highlight the varied presentation of bull gore injuries, our rural folk face day in and day out. Successful outcome is inevitable following prompt and learned surgical intervention.
