Steer Attacks Teacher During Classroom Demonstration: MyFoxPHOENIX.com

SHELBY, Ohio, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- An Ohio vocational teacher leading a steer to slaughter in a meat processing class was attacked by the animal and hospitalized, the school said.

The accident occurred at Pioneer Career and Technology Center in Shelby, Ohio, in a class offering an understanding of start-to-finish meat cutting. Instructor Bill Kucic was leading a 1,200 pound steer from a holding pen into a narrow stall last week when the bull picked Kucic up with his horns and tossed him into the air.

School Superintendent Glenna Cannon told WJW-TV, "When he flipped, he hit his head. He had a few broken bones and some lacerations to his neck."

A student called 911, and another, acting on his classroom knowledge, closed a gate to keep the steer away from the injured teacher. Kucic was airlifted to a Columbus hospital.

The school is considering changes in the way livestock are brought to its slaughter room. The animal's demise was delayed by a day.
