GRANVILLE SUMMIT, Pa. — A coroner says a Pennsylvania farmer has been killed by one of his own bulls.

The Bradford County coroner says 54-year-old Henry Saxton was pinned between a steel gate and a wooden beam when the bull rushed him from behind Tuesday afternoon.

That happened on Saxton’s farm in Granville Township, about 75 miles (120.7 kilometers) northwest of Scranton.
