BARNARD, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a 55-year-old dairy farmer was killed by a bull while bringing in the cows for milking.
The body of Dwight Clark of Barnard was found late Wednesday by local rescuers after Clark's sister reported she couldn't find him on the farm. A search party located him in a back 500 acre field just after midnight. Clark had succumbed tio his injuries by the time rescuers had located him.
Clark was recalled yesterday as a quiet, dependable farmer who rarely ventured off his Royalton Turnpike Road property. "The farm was his life," his sister said.
Police say the bull was a full-grown Holstein that did not have horns.
The bull had been left in the pasture with the cows for breeding.
