At approximately 19:00 on Tuesday (27/7/21) the team were called out by NWAS to reports of a farmer having been badly kicked and trampled by a bull near his farm, near Billinge, Blackburn.
Our team leader was first on scene and shortly after the team were stood down as the ambulance crew managed to get the gentlemen to the land ambulance without further assistance.
Remember folks cows can be unpredictable at times and especially if they have young nearby and bulls can be especially territorial if their herd are in the same field. Give them a very wide birth or better still avoid them if at all possible.
