"Farmer, 49, gored to death by an 'angry and aggressive' 600kg bull"

From The Daily Mail:

The 49-year-old Warrnambool Midfield Meat worker was attacked by the large Friesian steer at 9.30am at a property in Dunkeld, Victoria, on Friday morning, The Standard reported.

He was weighing cattle when he was mauled by the "aggressive" animal, police said.

"He suffered fatal injuries. The man has managed to get out of the yards and was near the loading ramp. When located he was unconscious and not breathing and was unable to be revived," Hamilton police Sergeant David Walkley said.

The animal has been put down*.

* Wasn't the bull going to be slaughtered anyway? What's the difference?

The Mail is slipping, we are not told how much the bull's pen is worth.

"Wasn't the bull going to be slaughtered anyway?"

Do you think it knew and thought "at least I'll take one of the bastards with me"?

AKH, they don’t usually mention it in context with slaughterhouses.

B, yes of course he did.
