Around 11:30 on Sunday a farmer in his 50’s was flown to a hospital after he was knocked over and kicked in the head by his own cow! He suffered, head, back, and chest injuries. This took place at a property in Cockfield near Bishop Auckland, County Durham. He was in stable condition in the hospital having suffered what air ambulance service said were “severe or serious” injuries. It is thought that around one person a year on average is killed by cattle in Britain, with many more injured.
