Correct scanned text, then cut and paste.

While a butcher was leading a young bull from the railway station at Festiniog on Tuesday the animal ran amok. It galloped along the streets, and eventually dashed up the incline to Llechwedd Quarry.

A boy, the son of Mr. William Davies, carrier, was standing near the edge of the quarry, and the infuriated bull rushed straight for him and tossed him over into the quarry. The bull then fell over the precipice and was killed.

Prompt efforts were made to recover the boy, who was brought out badly injured. It is thought he may recover.
