Ye Olde Cow Attack

Item 7 in a BBC article on Ten strange ways Tudors died

Tudor-style mad cow disease took the form of a “madd cow” belonging to William Cheills of Hogsthorpe, Lincolnshire. A man walking through the fields in March 1557 was attacked by the cow, which gored him to death with her horn [just the one?]. The victim’s name was Robert Calf.
