Four people were injured — two seriously — after they were gored by a bull near Navasota, authorities said.

According to Grimes County Deputy Reed Edelman, the incident happened around 6 p.m. July 5 at a pasture on Millstone Drive. Emergency personnel were sent to the field around 6 p.m. on the report of a bull attack. Edelman said four people were injured, with a man and a woman suffering serious wounds from being punctured by the bull’s horns.

Deputies distracted the bull and lured it away from the victims, and two medical helicopters arrived on scene to transport the man and woman to area hospitals. They were initially listed in critical condition, with the man showing improvement and recently moved from the intensive care unit, Edelman said. No update was available on the woman.

In addition, one person was treated at the scene and another was taken to an area hospital via ambulance.

Investigators say it appears the bull escaped from its owner’s pasture and wandered onto a neighbor’s land. People associated with the neighbor attempted to shoo the bull away, and that is when he attacked, officials said.

The bull has been euthanized. The owner does not face criminal charges.
