We report a case of a calf-related fatality on a farm. The victim was a 60-year-old man who was possibly attempting to sexually approach the animal from behind when he was struck by it, sustaining fatal blunt injuries, mostly to the thorax. This case is reported because of its rarity and because of the particular circumstances of death. Fatal trauma associated with bovines is rare on the whole, and when it does occur it is usually caused by kicking or pushing during regular agricultural activity. Although the cause of death in our case could be determined, the circumstances and the manner of death remain speculative to some degree.
