(Scroll down for video) A man was taken to a hospital after a ram did not want to die and apparently showed that it is the boss.

The man of Dayton, Oregon, is in the hospital after being head butted by the ram on Thursday morning.

Dayton firefighters were called to the Ben Meat Processing Company, where they found Kelly Duval, 49, laying on the ground with serious injuries.

A worker at the meat processing plant said that Duval stuck his head inside the pen to remove the male ram so it can be slaughtered. The ram assaulted him in the face with its horns.

The owner of the meat processing company, Ben Montelongo, said that Duval has worked for him often in recent years. Montelongo also said that he heard Duval screaming and ran to his aid. He found Duval laying on the ground with injuries to his face so he called 911.

According to authorities, Duval was taken by helicopter to the Oregon Health and Science University, where he was in serious condition and is being treated in the trauma unit.

Montelongo reportedly said that he might let the head butting ram live because it fought to stay alive.
