COVINGTON, N.Y. — State police say a 72-year-old man has died after being struck by a bull on a farm in western New York.
Troopers say Roy C. Bell of Perry died Thursday at a farm on Simmons Road in Covington, 30 miles southwest of Rochester. Police say Bell was moving cattle around the farm when he was struck by a 1-year-old bull shortly before noon.
A family member found him unresponsive and emergency medical personnel tried to revive him without success. Bell was taken to the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy.
It was the second death caused by a bull in upstate New York in 10 days. On July 24, 68-year-old Eugene Wolfert died after being gored by a bull on his dairy farm in Middlefield in Otsego County.
