A Prineville man died after he was thrown from a bull and stepped on at the Paulina Amateur Rodeo.
The Crook County Sheriff’s Office reports 58-year-old contestant Richard Wayne Perry was competing in front of family and friends Saturday afternoon when the incident occurred.
Rager Emergency Services and sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and attempted life-saving measures for 45 minutes, according to the Associated Press.
The rodeo was shut down for more than an hour.
KTVZ-TV reported that Perry’s daughter Bailey posted on the news organization’s Facebook page.
She said the day was hard for many and a shock for her, but that her dad died doing what he loved, which not many people get to do.
