"AN OX.-An accident occurred on Thursday last to a poor woman residing in Llechryd, who was tossed and trampled upon near the entrance to St. Mary-street; Cardigan, by an Ox, which was being driven to the slaughter house. It appears the animal became restive and in spite of the utmost exertions of the men who had the care of it, attacked the poor woman, whose name is Anna Jenkins, and tossed her, but as one of his horns was secured to his leg, he was unable to wreak his full vengeance he however furiously trampled upon her and her clothes were completely torn to pieces. Upon being rescued she was carried to the Red Lion Inn, when Mr. Thomas, the landlord, ill the most humane manner tendered her all the assistance in his power and supplied her with fresh apparel."
