77-year-old German tourist trampled to death by COWS while taking shortcut in the Swiss Alps

A 77-year-old German tourist is dead after she was attacked by cows while hiking through a pasture in the Swiss Alps.
The woman was taking a shortcut through a fenced-off area, and there was a sign warning people to avoid the cows.

The bizarre incident occurred near Laax, in the canton of Graubunden, as the woman was walking to the Grauberg gondola station from a restaurant.
She passed through an electric fence and was knocked over and trampled by cows as they grazed on a trail, said police.

The animals were apparently trying to protect their calves.

A cyclist called for help and a doctor attended the scene, but the woman, from Berlin, died at the scene despite attempts to resuscitate her.
