A man was killed by a bull Wednesday night at a Heller Road property.
Deputies and medics responded around 6:45 p.m. to a livestock accident in the 6400 block of Heller Road after a man was severely injured by a bull.
Bruce Hoskins, 53, died from his injuries at the scene.
“It don’t take much when you get a 1,000-pound bull coming at you, they lower their heads and come at you and the horns just got him in the wrong spot,” Darke County Sheriff Toby Spencer said.
Hoskins’ brother and several neighbors rendered aid as crews arrived.
Spencer said believes Hoskins was injured after the bull hit a main artery, even though the horns were shortened.
