A group of four were walking in the Bannalp region on Monday afternoon when the cows charged. The hikers had two dogs with them, both on the leads. One dog walker released his animal so it could escape, the other couldn’t release the dog in time and was trampled.

He was taken to hospital with injuries all over his body. His dog was killed.

Farmers warn to be careful of cows, especially mothers looking after their calves at this time of year.

The path has ben closed for the time being.
