AMIDON, N.D. (AP) — A Bowman man has died after tangling with a cow on a ranch in southwestern North Dakota's Slope County.

Sheriff Pat Lorge tells The Dickinson Press that 81-year-old Stanley Pope was pronounced dead at the scene Monday night. Lorge says Pope and one of his sons were preparing to transport the cow to the family ranch near Amidon when the animal threw Pope over a fence and he landed on his head.

Pope and his wife, Joan, were preparing to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary in September. He is survived by his wife, three sons, a daughter, a grandchild and two great-grandchildren.
