Bull kills man
A 54-year old man was killed by a bull on a farm in Millingen aan de Rijn on Saturday morning. The man was discovered dead in a pasture on his family farm on the Heerbaan in Millingen aan de Rijn. According to the police, he was gored through the stomach by the bull's horns. The victim was the son of an elderly woman who still lives on the farm. He often came by to help care for the animals. A trauma helicopter was called in, but nothing could be done to save the man. The bull was tranquilized so that forensic investigation could be done. Blood was found on the bull's horns, which matches the DNA of the 54-year old vicim. It is unclear what the bull's fate will be.
