Steer kills western Iowa man

CUSHING, Iowa (AP) — The Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office says a steer killed a western Iowa man who was trying to move the animal.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1dUFSoS ) 52-year-old Larry Johnson, of Cushing, died Monday night after he was injured while trying to load a 900-pound steer onto a trailer.

Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Tony Wingert says the animal injured Johnson while both were inside the trailer.

An ambulance crew rushed Johnson to a helicopter landing zone, but he died before the copter arrived.

Wingert says Johnson’s daughter and another person were helping Johnson load the steer.

The animal was being moved because it was aggressive and had damaged a pen.
