When tractors attack

From The Daily Mail:

A boy of 10 saved his dad from being gored to death by jumping on a tractor to drive straight at an angry bull.

Brave Tom Phillips watched in horror as the bull charged at his father Andrew – throwing him in the air like a rag doll on the family farm in Abergavenny, South Wales. The huge 2,000lb beast then stood over the unconscious farmer, snorting and mauling his lifeless body with its giant hooves.

Terrified Tom climbed onto the tractor for safety… instincts took over and Tom turned the key to drive slowly towards his dad lying under the fierce Limousin bull. Tom carefully aimed for the animal worried he might crush his unconscious father under the giant wheels.

He managed to nudge the bull away from his father – then ran back to the farmhouse to alert his mother Amanda…

Or, from the bull’s point of view “Damn! Tractors are trying to get their revenge for this.”
