||Persons whose occupations are in animal husbandry may be seriously injured or killed while tending to animals. Bulls are among the most dangerous of these animals. In this study, seven deaths and 23 traumatic injury cases caused by bull attacks and treated in a hospital in Turkey are presented. Of the 30 total cases, 24 were men and 6 were women. Findings are discussed. It is concluded that caution is required while feeding and working with bulls. Risk can be reduced by chutes, gates, restraints, special housing and confinement facilities. Also, wearing protective helmets would be useful especially for preventing head injuries.
