Sunday, Feb. 8, Melvin Pundsack, 74, was attacked by a bull on his family farm, 43796 Hwy. 238, just south of St. Francis. Albany Police, State Patrol, Upsala Rescue and the Melrose Ambulance responded, as well as the Stearns County Sheriff's Office. Pundsack was knocked down and attacked while his wife Rose was forced to stand on a snow pile to avoid injury. When responders arrived, they could not assist Mr. Pundsack because of the aggressiveness of the animal. The Albany Officer used his taser on the animal, allowing rescue members to remove Mr. Pundsack and take him by Melrose Ambulance to the Melrose Hospital for treatment, after which he was released. The bull was securely corralled and no other injuries were reported.
