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.

    Bulls on farms do not have horns anymore, it is a very outdated photo and provides an unrealistic glimpse into modern farming. Suggest removing and replacing.

    The one thing that worked for me,was to place the barrel of my shotgun firmly between the bulls eyes.And hold it there while walking sideways away from the bull! I did this thanks to the Crockadile Dundee movie.It worked! He was still standing with head crouched down when I slowly got 30 yards away from him.Ask someone else why it worked,but it DID!

    In the real world, Bulls and cows may still have horns, I agree with Jenny 🙂
