Originally printed in the Star News, July 4, 1940

Charles Mueller, town of Medford famer, suffered a badly-cut thigh and body bruising when attacked in his barn by his Guernsey bull Friday evening, about 6 o’clock.

He was leading the animal from the building at the time when it suddenly turned on him, throwing him some distance across the barn, against the basement wall.

The wall, which runs east and west, is constructed in such a way that it goes up for approximately three feet and then juts out a few inches. Mueller stated that this undoubtedly saved his life, as the bull was unable to reach him with his horns where he lay, striking the wall instead with his head whenever he tried.
