The article focuses on the cases of accidents involving livestock in Great Britain. These accidents account for a large proportion of farm fatalities, while the number of injuries incurred while handling livestock runs to nearly a thousand. Between April 2001 and March 2007, 22 agricultural workers were killed as a result of livestock, mostly cattle. In addition, there are undoubtedly large numbers of minor incidents and near misses that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) never hears about and many serious accidents are not reported to the HSE.
