A Wyoming County woman has died as a result of being trampled by a bull.
Wyoming County Sheriff’s Deputies report that 39-year-old Anna Eccles was discovered unresponsive in a pasture on Monday at the Patrick Hulton Farm in Arcade.
Hulton himself called 911 and began administering CPR after discovering Eccles lying in his pasture. She was rushed to Wyoming County Community Hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Eccles was a farmhand and was working in the same pasture as a bull on Monday. No one witnessed the apparent attack, but deputies say Eccles’ injuries were consistent with being mauled or trampled by that bull.
