Japan bull tosses, kills man
TOKYO – A bull killed a Japanese man after tossing him 10 meters (30 feet) through the air and goring him against a brick wall, police said Monday.
The 63-year-old died after the one-ton bull ruptured his aorta – the main artery in the body – when it jammed him against the wall on a farmyard in western Shiga prefecture on Saturday.
The man had been trying to yoke the animal so he could milk a nearby cow when it flung him through the air, before pinning him against the wall, local media reported.
