A HANDLER lies dazed on the ground after being dragged along by a bull.
The prize-winning Limousin was being led from the ring when it became ‘spooked’ at The Great Yorkshire Show.
Panic broke out as the bull charged around the ring and spectators dashed to get out of the way, but the animal was quickly brought under control.
The handler, who was briefly knocked out, was treated by ambulance staff before being transferred to Harrogate District Hospital with what were described as ‘non-serious’ head injuries.
One spectator said: ‘It was scary. This is a big animal we are talking about. There were a few screams because, at one point, we did fear it could charge. I wouldn’t like to be in its path.’
The Great Yorkshire Show is the largest agricultural show in England. It is held in Harrogate every year and attracts more than 130,000 visitors and 8,500 animals.
