BOLTON (CBS) – A comfort sheep is believed to have killed a volunteer at a farm in Bolton, outside of Boston, Massachusetts. The volunteer was identified as 73-year-old Kim Taylor.

“Taylor, a longtime volunteer at Cultivate Care Farms, was caring for livestock in a pen alone when a sheep charged at her and repeatedly rammed her,” said a statement from the Nashoba Valley Regional Emergency Communications Center.

Taylor suffered extensive serious injuries and went into cardiac arrest shortly after first responders arrived. She was rushed to Marlborough Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
