Farmer 'killed in field by cattle' in Groombridge

From the BBC:

A farmer whose body was found in a field may have been trampled to death by his cattle, Sussex Police said.

The 64-year-old's body was found in a field with his Aberdeen Angus cattle and he died at the scene.

Mr Sandys's partner, Christine... found him on the ground in the field with the cows and a nine-year-old bull which had been born and raised on the farm, she said.

The bull was snorting and stamping and it was not safe to get close to Mr Sandys, she added.

I know the police shouldn't jump to conclusions, but "May have been trampled to death"??
