Bolton, Massachusetts (AP) — A 73-year-old volunteer from an animal-assisted therapy farm in Massachusetts died on the weekend after being repeatedly attacked by sheep.

Warren Nelson, Bolton’s police chief, said in a statement on Sunday, Wellesley’s Kim Taylor was taking care of livestock with a pen alone at Bolton’s Cartive Care Farm around 9am on Saturday.

Taylor, a longtime volunteer on the farm, said he was “seriously injured and in cardiac arrest” shortly after police and rescue personnel arrived at the scene and began first aid in response to the 911 call.

She was taken to Marlboro Hospital, where she was sentenced to death, he said.

Animal care and farm staff are deciding what to do with the sheep.

The non-profit Cultivate Care Farms, on its website, states that it offers animal-based mental health therapies for children and adolescents. A message asking for comment was left to farm officials.
