WEST WARREN, Utah (AP) -- A Weber County farm hand was injured after being charged by a bull in a milk barn.

Emilio Saiz, 31, was separating cows from bulls when an angry bull lowered its head and rammed him.

Other farm workers corralled the animal. Saiz was knocked out but woke up when medical crews arrived.

Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Donny Archuletta said Saiz suffered cuts, bruises and a possible broken leg.

McKay-Dee Hospital said Saiz was treated for the injuries and released Wednesday.

Authorities aren't certain what triggered the attack, and they couldn't immediately determine the owner of the barn.
