The 2 people were brother and sister, and lived in separate houses on the same property.

Brent Benson and Barb McPherson were the 2 that were attacked.

At around 4:00 pm, Barb witnessed Brent entering the pasture near the barn, from her house. She didn’t see her brother again, and assumed that he had gone back to his house, or had left.

Nearly two hours later, she went down to the pasture herself to find the bull standing over her brother.

She tried to get the bull tied up in the barn, but was also attacked by the bull, and knocked unconscious for an unknown amount of time. When she came to, she tied the bull up, and went back to her house to call 911.

When the ambulance arrived on scene, they immediately requested a helicopter for Brent. This later would be determined to not be possible due to weather.

Personnel on scene determined that Barb had a shoulder injury and called a second ambulance.

Once at the hospital, it was determined that Barb had suffered injuries from broken ribs to a dislocated shoulder. She was transferred to an Erie hospital.

Brent is still in critical condition and has injuries ranging from broken ribs and punctured lungs, to a head injury involving swelling of the brain. More....
