A Martin County Sheriff’s Sergeant was forced to shoot the angry bull in order to save the ranch owner’s life.

The bull had just trampled on the man and seriously injured the rancher, and was attempting to push the injured man into a pond.

Sergeant Carmine Diapalo responded to the disturbance call on a large piece of property located at 25801 SW Martin Highway, just after 7:00 a.m.

When he arrived, Diapalo saw 24-year-old Justin White, in a fetal position near a body of water. The bull was standing over the injured man and was acting extremely aggressive.

In order to rescue the ranch owner, Diapalo fired three shots, killing the bull. The rancher who is an experienced and very popular rancher in the agricultural community, was seriously injured.

He was flown to a hospital for treatment.
