Wisconsin woman recovering after trampled by a bull


A Clyman, Wisconsin woman is recovering after a dangerous run-in with a bull on the family farm last week.

Authorities responded to W6090 Train Road around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday where family members had found 56-year-old Tena Borchardt severely injured after being trampled by a bull. Her husband James, who found her, told WKOW that the bull “pushed her down once, he picked her up and threw her about 10 feet ahead. From that point on he bulldozed her across the concrete.” James said it was the third hit that threw Tena to the other side of the fence that probably saved her life.

This hasn’t been the only setback for the family this year. According to a GoFundMe page, James has also had some major medical issues.

“James was diagnosed wrong in January and ended up in the hospital in February where the doctor pulled 19 liters of fluids off of him. By March he was in the hospital having quadruple bypass surgery. He has had a slow recovery, but is still trying to run the family farm with his wife by his side. Last night Tena was found after being trampled by the family bull. She was med flighted to the hospital after suffering some serious injuries. She is fighting to get back to her husband and her family farm. We can’t express how grateful we would be for your support of our family by donating, or sharing the GoFundMe with you social network. We appreciate everyone help during these hard times.”
