PARKERS PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) – Sheriff’s officials say a farmer in western Minnesota has died after he was trampled by his livestock.

Forty-one-year-old Craig Thoennes was found dead near a bull and two cows on Saturday at his farm southwest of Parkers Prairie, Minnesota.

Deputies found Thoennes’ body near a shed in the cow yard where two cows and a bull were roaming free there and in the yard.

Douglas County Sheriff Troy Wolbersen says Thoennes was apparently trampled by the bull and possibly the cows.

Funeral services for Thoennes will be held Friday at Calvary Lutheran Church in Alexandria.
