Posting on Facebook, Edale Mountain Rescue Team said: “A request from Derbyshire Constabulary to go to the aid of a walker on Lose Hill.
“A walker out for a day’s walking with an organised walking group had been butted by a cow and had sustained several injuries.
“The team alongside Buxton Mountain Rescue Team were mobilised as is midweek protocol to rv (rendezvous) at Loose Hill farm.

Advice from The Ramblers charity says walkers should look out for any animals when entering a field and watch how they are behaving, particularly bulls or cows with calves.
It says walkers should avoid getting between cows and their calves, and should move quickly, quietly and, if possible, walk around a herd.
