A man died after he was mauled by a bull on a farm northeast of Jordan on Monday, Scott County authorities said.

Nobody witnessed the incident, but family members found the victim and called 911 just before 4 p.m., said Sgt. Phil Nawrocki, an investigator with the Scott County sheriff's office.

"Apparently one of the bulls had pinned the individual in ... a fenced-in area, causing his death," Nawrocki said.

The victim had been doing routine chores when it happened, he said.

The responding deputies shot and killed the bull, Nawrocki said.

The victim's name was not immediately released.
