A McIntosh, Minn., man was killed by a bull Monday, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Ronald John Sogla, 56, was fencing in a pasture north of McIntosh in Polk County's Hill River Township when a large bull charged him. The bull knocked Sogla down and "rolled him around on the ground" before returning to the herd, according to a news release from Deputy Randy Lee.

Sogla's brother saw it happen and helped get Sogla to the farmyard. Sogla lost consciousness and family members began CPR until emergency medical workers arrived. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

McIntosh is on U.S. Highway 2, about 32 miles southeast of Crookston.

The Minnesota State Patrol, McIntosh Fire Department and Rescue and First Care Ambulance from Fosston, Minn., helped the sheriff's office in the incident, which still is being investigated, Lee said.
