AVOCA, Wis. (AP) — A farmer has died after he was attacked by a bull on his farm in Iowa County.

Sheriff’s officials say 78-year-old Alfred Albrecht and his son were feeding cattle on the farm near Avoca Sunday.

Albrecht’s son left to get another bale of hay and the bull attacked Albrecht.

When his son returned, he secured the bull and called 911.

Albrecht was taken to Upland Hills Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
