Cow Trampled Lomira Farmer, Non-Life Threatening Injuries

LOMIRA -

Dodge County investigators say a woman was trampled by a cow with a calf while working with the farm animals Wednesday morning.

It was a neighbor who called 9-1-1 from the Lomira property.

The woman was taken by Flight for Life to the hospital.

Responding paramedics say she was conscious and alert when they arrived.

The injuries are described as not life threatening.

As best as investigators can piece it together, the woman was working on the animals, in particular a cow and calf when the larger animal pounced.

The CDC reports that each year 22 people are killed by cows.

75% of deaths were the result of deliberate attacks.

A third of of the attacks were attributed to cattle that had no prior signs of aggressive behavior.
