Dairy worker gored by bull

A dairy farm worker from Katamatite is recovering at home after being seriously injured when he was gored by a bull on a local farm.

February 27, 2013 4:10am

The 59-year-old man suffered eight broken ribs, a punctured lung and internal injuries when the bull pinned him against a fence.

He said later he would have been killed had adrenaline not kicked in and he was able to wriggle out under the fence.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesman said paramedics responded to a call to the farm at 7am and the injured man was placed in spinal support and taken to Goulburn Valley Base Hospital.

He was then flown to Melbourne where he spent six days in the trauma unit at The Alfred Hospital.

The owner shot the bull immediately after the incident on February 13.
