Farming accidents involving animals
Accidents involving sheep on farms are few and far between, however, working with livestock can be dangerous. Animals may pass on diseases to humans and pigs, cattle and farmed deer can be dangerous. A skittish bull can do a lot of harm, for example, if it is loose in a field which the public have access to.
Cows are large beasts and a herd of them, all moving together can crush someone against a fence, gate or wall when they are being herded. They have also been known to trample and kill people, especially members of the public who walk through their field with a dog off its leash.
One pig farmer whose farm was near the coast of Oregon, USA, was believed to have been eaten by his pigs in an accident in early October 2012.
