An 82-year-old man has died after he was attacked by a herd of cows, police say.

The man and his wife were walking in the Yorkshire Dales when the attack happened at lunchtime on Saturday.

An air ambulance was called and the man was pronounced dead at the scene, at Ivescar, near Ingleton.

His 78-year-old wife, who was badly bruised, was flown to Royal Lancaster Infirmary. She is not thought to be seriously injured.

6. I had a close call. I went out in my car to do the morning

cattle count. When I got out of the car, my dog got past me and started chasing cows. He had a habit of doing it, and the bull really did not like it. The bull had enough and started chasing the dog. All the cattle joined it. The dog ran to me for help! I ran to the car and jumped on the hood -- just in time. The dog went under the car. It was a close call. Lesson learned: when we went in the car to do the counting, the dog was leased and tied inside the car.

7. I just rec'd this because I want others to see it. My whole belief in cows is now

ruined. I have always thought of them as gentle giants.

And at the link a person posted that they were also attacked by cows.

I still think it could be fake. They don't show a picture of the cows.
