A teenager in Maine is recovering after being attacked by a bull on Monday night. Vinnie Huntington, 17, said he was trying to round up the bull and a steer after both got out of their pens on his family’s farm.
Huntington said he was about 10 feet away from the bull, named Cinnamon, when it charged him. He said there was little he could do. The bull hit Huntington twice in the back, flipped him in the air and stomped on him before his mother and a neighbor were able to help free him from underneath the bull.
Huntington, who suffered two dislocated shoulders, two puncture wounds to his back and several bumps and bruises, hopes to be released from the hospital on Thursday. Shortly after the attack, the 1,800-pound bull was shot and the family plans on eating it for dinner.
“We were probably going to eat him eventually, but now that this has happened, he’s already been cut up,” Huntington said. “I’m going to enjoy it, too.”
