Dyfed-Powys Police received reports at approx. 10.15am this morning (Saturday November 19) of a cow dangerously out of control in Whitland. The cow had escaped from Whitland Mart, and made its way to the centre of the village. It came across an elderly man in North Road, where it attacked and trampled him, causing serious injury. The man was conveyed by Air Ambulance to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
The cow then went on the rail track in the area, and trains had to be put on stop to mitigate the danger to them. Eventually it made its way to a field, where every effort was made to safely contain it in consultation with the owner. Unfortunately all attempts failed, and due to the danger posed by the animal it was humanely dispatched with the consent of the owner. The Health and Safety Executive have been informed.
