Farmer dies following bull handling incident in the UK

Farmers have been reminded to take proper precautions when handling livestock.

The appeal from the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) in the UK comes after a man was killed following a bull handling incident.

The accident occurred on a farm in Herefordshire on Saturday (August 8th).

West Mercia Police was called to the medical incident at approximately 2:30 pm; however, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A HSE spokesperson said: “Carrying out tasks on unrestrained cattle or with makeshift equipment dramatically increases the risk of injury from crushing, kicking, butting or goring.”
