A Roane County man was killed by a bull at his farm yesterday afternoon.

The bull reportedly mauled the man to death.

Charles Daniel Karnes, 42, of Coal Run, was reportedly in the process of burying a cow that had died when he was attacked by the bull, according to WVRC Radio.

Roane County emergency services responded to the scene, but could not revive the man.

Karnes had reportedly been mauled by a bull a few weeks earlier.

His body was sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Charleston.

The bull was destroyed.
