Cow attacked elderly walker

A cow attacked an elderly man in the Wiltshire countryside. The cattle charged at the man and his friend, trampling one to death and leaving the other with serious injuries.

The introduction of foreign cows into the UK to improve stock has seen a rise in attacks of countryside walkers where routes pass through cow fields.

Foreign breeds imported from Europe are more aggressive than those from the UK, especially cows bred for meat as they are not familiar with human contact.
