New York farming community loses another to bull


For the second time in 10 days, a New York farmer has died after an incident with a bull.

On Thursday, New York State Troopers responded to Simmons Road in the town of Covington for a man struck by a bull. Further investigation revealed that Roy C Bell, 72, of Perry  was moving cattle around the farm. A family member located Bell after being struck by the one-year-old bull.

Life saving measures were administered to Bell who was unresponsive. Bell succumbed to his injuries and was taken to Monroe County Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy.

Last week, a Middlefield, New York dairy farmer died after a bull he was feeding attacked him. Authorities say Eugene Wolfert, 68, was attacked by the animal multiple times and was eventually pushed out of the pasture. Family members said the bull had shown no signs of aggressive behavior before and has since been euthanized.
