THIS is the eye-watering moment a BBC cameraman is butted square in the groin by an angry sheep.
The wounded – but chuckling – man keels over in pain moments after trying to protect himself and continue filming the livestock.

It happened while a crew was filming content for a BBC series exploring life at Longleat Estate and Safari Park, Wilts.
But despite being knocked to the floor by the grumpy animal the cameraman saw the funny side, laughing as he went down.
While Kate Humble chatted to one of the keepers – who had just been saying he needed to be taught manners – Cecil the Cameroon Sheep went for the man’s privates.
The rare sheep is part of a rowdy all-male group at the Warminster estate and had already been ticked off for headbutting his keeper’s shins.
But after he stopped getting attention from the two women, and the treats he had been plied with disappeared, Cecil lost his cool.
He approached the crouched down cameraman, who nervously hovered his hand in front of his groin.
But the crew member gained in confidence and moved his hand back to the camera, giving Cecil a window of opportunity – and he struck.
His horned head struck the poor man in his nether regions and he fell to the floor on top of the sheep.
The host of the programme and the keeper laughed as they chastised Cecil and apologised to the injured chap, now lying in pain on the grass.
Last year we told how Theresa May – Prime Minister at the time – saw her big telly moment overshadowed by a photobomber – who started doing star jumps in the background.
The PM was interviewed by the BBC’s Andrew Marr at the start of the Tory party conference in Birmingham.
Mrs May was hoping to use the event to promote her plan for Brexit and send a message to Brussels that they need to be more flexible.
But halfway through the interview, a man outside the studio started doing star jumps in an apparent bid to attract attention.
