Johannesburg – A 71-year-old farmer was gored to death by his own bull after it broke out of its pen on Wednesday in Kareedouw near Uitenhage, Eastern Cape police said.
Superintendent Priscilla Naidu said Alan Desmond Germond of Melkhoutkraal tried to get the bull back into its pen around 09:00.
The bull charged and flung Germond into the air. He sustained an open wound to his stomach.
He died on scene.
The bull was shot and killed on the instruction of Germond’s son who was on his way to the farm from Grahamstown, said Naidu.
