Dog walker Curtis warns of cow attacks near Elton

A DOG walker has warned people using rights of way about the dangers of walking through cattle fields.

Curtis Fermor-Dunmare, 33, of Rutland Heights, Stamford, was attacked by a herd near Elton when he was out walking his two dogs last week.

The cows chased him and headbutted him in an attempt to get to the dogs, a cockerspaniel and a labrador.

He said: “I was absolutely terrified. We’re told to keep dogs on leads, but in this case it would have been better to let them off and run.”
