Dyfed-Powys Police received calls at about 10.15am on Saturday reporting that the cow had escaped from Whitland Mart in Carmarthenshire, Wales, and made its way into the centre of Whitland.


A police spokesperson said: "It came across an elderly man in North Road, where it attacked and trampled him, causing serious injury."


Air Ambulance was dispatched and took the injured elderly man to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff for treatment.



According to police, the cow then made its way onto the rail tracks, with trains stopped to "mitigate the danger to them", before it left and went into a field.


Authorities added that attempts to contain the cow safely had failed and with the consent of the owner, the animal was "humanely dispatched".


No further details on the well-being of the injured man have been released.
