Woman gored in upper leg by ‘angry’ buffalo as she’s rushed to hospital

A woman has been rushed to hospital after she was gored by a buffalo in her upper leg.

Paramedics were called to Denham Court, Sydney, Australia, just before 1pm on Monday following reports of a buffalo attack on a woman.

The woman, who has not been named but is in her 40s, was taken to Liverpool Hospital with a bloody wound to her upper leg.

Neighbour Stefan Murphy told NCA NewsWire he believed the woman was visiting the home as there were extra cars there that morning.

He said buffalo lived on the property, but he’d never head of an attack before, describing the buffalo "pretty big."

Mr Murphy said: "They have some pretty big ones.

"They’re usually locked in."

He said the woman was most likely playing around or near the paddock, not realising the buffalo had been moved.

Adding: "I saw her getting taken into the ambulance, she seemed all right."

New South Wales Ambulance Inspector, Audie Jousif, said: "We attend quite a few jobs involving animals but being called to a buffalo attack in Sydney is one of the more unusual incidents.

"These types of jobs can be really quite challenging for paramedics, especially with the possibility of an angry buffalo lurking close by – they need to be able to get to the patient quickly but have to ensure they are not putting themselves in harm’s way.

"Our paramedics did a fantastic job in getting to this lady and providing the best possible care."
