DURHAM, Maine — A 17-year-old Maine youth is recovering from injuries he suffered when he was attacked by a bull that had escaped a farm pen in the town of Durham.

Officials say the teenager, whose name was not released, suffered a serious puncture wound to the back and other bumps and bruises. The injuries are not considered life threatening.

Durham Fire Captain Michael Lacasse says the bull was out of control and charged at people trying to get it back in its pen.

WGME-TV says family members and neighbors tried to corral the animal but were unsuccessful. The bull was put down with a rifle.
