Woman dies from cow’s head injury after being bitten by it

A woman in Queensland has died from a cow’s bite after falling into a creek to collect her milk.

The 25-year-old woman was found by her boyfriend who was cleaning the creek on the Gold Coast in the early hours of Sunday.

She had been working on her property when she went down and was bitten by the animal, according to Queensland Police.

Police said the woman, who was not injured, was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The death has been ruled a “cow bite”.

She was a member of the Gold and White Cow herd, which also includes the Bunnies, and was part of a large herd, the Queensland Department of Agriculture said.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the incident was “deeply sad” and the community should be “heartbroken”.

“We need to be mindful of the safety and well-being of the people that are working on our farms and in our communities and we will do everything possible to support them,” Ms Palaszek said.
