An 85-year-old hiker died tragically while hiking the French Pyrenees. But not in the way one might expect.

The man was actually charged by a herd of cows, knocked down by one and her calf, resulting in his death. Four other hikers were also injured by the herd.

It’s common to encounter livestock in European hiking areas, and hikers should always take note to leave them be. Read more on the incident from Gadling.
