Cow attacked elderly walker

A cow attacked an elderly man in the Wiltshire countryside. The cattle charged at the man and his friend, trampling one to death and leaving the other with serious injuries.

The introduction of foreign cows into the UK to improve stock has seen a rise in attacks of countryside walkers where routes pass through cow fields.

Foreign breeds imported from Europe are more aggressive than those from the UK, especially cows bred for meat as they are not familiar with human contact.

Officials have warned that walkers should pass through cow fields quickly and quietly and must take care not to separate the mothers from their calves.

We act for a number of clients who have suffered injuries from animal attacks. If you have been a victim of an animal attack you may be able to make a claim. It is important you get independent expert legal advice, preferably as soon as possible from one of our specialist lawyers.

My wife and I would like to thank you for your fair, efficient and helpful attitude in your dealings with our cases.

Mr C | Nottingham

There has been excellent communication throughout the entire claim process. I was kept unto date with all the information from Sainsburys and the outcome has been excellent. Thank you to all involved.

Mr W
