It appears that Zropf was in one of the paddocks when a bull charged him. There was no chance of escape, and the infuriated beast tossed the boy all over the place. Fortunately Zropf was attended by his dog and, although he was being buttered and tossed about by the beast, he was able to retain his presence of mind and urge his dog on to the animal. The dog unmercifully heeled the bull, which at last turned his attention from the boy to the dog, and the latter held the bull at bay until some of the unfortunate lad's brothers rushed to his assistance and drove the beast off. The lad has no bones broken, but he is cut and bruised about terribly. One of the bull's horns pierced his chest. He has a severe lacerated wound on the left thigh and is otherwise badly bruised and cut. His life was undoubtedly saved by the dog attacking the bull."
