A 59-year-old Connecticut man was seriously injured after being attacked by a bull on the farm where he worked.
Members of the family they told Hearst Connecticut Media that the bull attacked Randy Janquins on Friday at a farm in Harwinton, Connecticut, while he was putting several cows into a barn after milking them.
"The bull was in heat because it's his mating season this time of year," Ellen Hull, Janquins' sister, told Hearst. "Randy was basically in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Janquins, of Winsted, Connecticut, suffered a broken neck and is paralyzed from the waist down, Hull said. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors fused the vertebrae in his neck, he said.
Janquins told his sister that he was lying in the farmer's field for “quite a while” before someone found him.
