The Peak District National Park is certainly incredibly tempting to take your four-legged friend for a walk in, however, the vast expanse of countryside does have hidden dangers as one dog walker found out. It was on an otherwise regular Sunday when he was out walking his dog in a field near Hayfield, but it all went wrong when he came upon a field of cows.

It was at around 5.20pm on Sunday, September 11, when Kinder Mountain Rescue Team was called to the field between Hayfield and Peep O Day. It was after a report from the East Midlands Ambulance Service that the dog walker had been injured by a herd of cows.

When volunteers from the Mountain Rescue Team arrived at the scene they located the man, who had been trampled by the animals, and suffered injuries. No further details have been revealed about the extent of the man’s injuries but he was taken to hospital for treatment.

Members of Derbyshire police were also on the scene assisting the mountain rescue team and East Midlands Ambulance Service to treat the individual. Pictures taken at the scene show the man laying on the ground with a blanket around him while a Paramedic is standing up next to him holding what appears to be a drip.

Due to the extent of his injuries, Kinder Mountain Rescue volunteers placed the casualty on one of their vacuum mattress and used a stretcher to evacuate him from the scene. They then transferred him to a waiting ambulance and he was taken to hospital for treatment.

A statement from the Kinder Mountain Rescue Team said: “We wish the gentleman a full and speedy recovery.”
