Via @The_Sumoking, from The London Economic:
A veteran dairy farmer was killed by his own cattle as he tended to them – something he had done “thousands of times”, an inquest heard. Brian Swales, 67, went to check on his 17 Friesian heifers and one bull like any other day after one was described as “acting lame”.
But mystery remains over what happened as the grandad-of-two was alone and no-one saw how he came to die. North Yorkshire Coroner’s Court heard he suffered broken ribs and lacerations to his lungs resembling crush injuries. Reports at the time claimed he had been was trampled by the bull, but a coroner said it was impossible to tell what happened...

They just finally snapped, is my guess.
