Hertfordshire man killed by ‘highly agitated bull’

A man has died after being injured by a ‘highly agitated bull’.

 

He and another man were both seriously injured by the animal, and he later died at the scene.

 

Hertfordshire Police said officers were called shortly after 10pm on Thursday August 8 to a report of two men being injured by a bull in a field on Bedford Road, Holwell.

 

The bull – which belonged to the two men – was shot to prevent any further injuries.

 

A spokesperson said: “Upon arrival at the scene officers found a seriously injured man in a field with a highly agitated bull. To gain safe access to the man and to prevent any further injuries, firearms officers were authorised to shoot the bull.

 

“Both men were then treated at the scene by paramedics and sadly one man died as a result of the injuries he received.”

 

It came only days after a farmer was killed after falling through a fragile roof on a farm in Cumbria (July 29).
