Trouble with a cow giving birth apparently led to a farmer’s death in Houston County this weekend.
Sheriff Mark Inglett said the 67-year-old farmer was trying to help the cow deliver a calf at a farm in the Jefferson Ridge area Sunday night, when the animal reportedly kicked and stomped on the man.
The farmer’s wife witnessed the accident at a distance and called for help.
The victim was transported to Mayo in La Crosse, where he died late Sunday night.
Inglett said human deaths caused by farm animals do not happen frequently in Houston County.
