||Bulls continue to contribute to an unacceptable number of serious injuries and deaths. The objective of this literature survey was to gain a better perspective of bull-related incidents. Analysis of the literature and data indicates that: the risk of injury associated with hours of exposure to bulls is higher than that of working around cows; the risk of a bull-related fatality, based upon the hours of exposure, appears to be higher than other known hazards, such as tractor operation; victims generally appeared to have had considerable experience with handling bulls; bulls raised from calves on-site appeared more aggressive; most of the incidents involved the victim being inside the bull holding area. Recommendations are presented for reducing the potential of bull attacks on humans.
