The woman trampled to death by a herd of cows as she walked her dogs in a field in England was a veterinarian on vacation.
Liz Crowsley, 49, may have been trying to protect her two pet dogs, who escaped injury and were found running free near her body, according to an article in the Daily Mail.
Cows are highly protective of their newly-born calves at this time of year and farmers warn walkers they may attack, especially if a dog is in their field, the newspaper said.
Crowsley was walking along a public trail in the countryside of North Yorkshire with her spaniel and collie when she was killed.
She was apparently trapped against a wall and couldn’t escape the stampeding cattle. Crowsley, head vet at the Willows Veterinary Hospital in Hartford, Chesire, had been staying in a holiday cottage in the area.
