Watch video: Bull goes on rampage in Gujarat, injures two
After these incidents, the bull was tied up and was later taken to a nearby cowshed
A bull attacked two individuals on their daily commute in two separate incidents on Tuesday. The individuals were residents of Jemput, a village 60 kilometres away from Rajkot.
The CCTV footage of the incident shows how the bovine went on a rampage and injured the two men while they were passing through a narrow lane in the area.
The bull seemed calm at first but the scenario changed as soon as an elderly man came close while riding his bicycle. He triggering an attack from the bull. Soon, the man was seen lying on the road, his cycle alongside.
As the animal comes back to where it stood initially, the man stands up grappling with the attack but as he attempted to move away, the bull came back and pushed him against the wall of a house using its horns.
Right after the old man falls down, a local, who had been looking for a chance to help, threw water at the bull to shoo it away and took the injured elderly inside his house.
Moments later, another man came under the wrath of the bull as he was crossing the same lane on a scooter. Going by the video, he seemed to have realised the bovine's intention, as soon after taking the hit, he regained balance and briskly walked away leaving his vehicle in order to avoid any further damage.
The previous victim's bicycle was still seen lying at the same spot.
Both the men who came under attack suffered injuries, the latter one, however, only had minor ones.
After these incidents, the bull was tied up and was later taken to a nearby cowshed.
