A man has died after being attacked by a herd of cows while walking in the Yorkshire Dales, police have said.
The man, 82, from Foulridge, Pendle, was out walking with his wife at Ivescar, Ingleton on Saturday at around 13:45 BST.
North Yorkshire Police said emergency services were called but the man died at the scene. His wife, aged 78, was badly bruised and taken by air ambulance to Lancaster Royal Infirmary.

Via @AmbushPredator, SkyNews covered the story, concluding with this:
The Health and Safety Executive says, based on the number of accidents every year, cows are the most dangerous animals in the UK with mainly farm workers and walkers falling victim.
Mainly "walkers with dogs during calving season", if you really want to know.
