RAPID CITY, S.D. — A jury has awarded a Florida man injured by a bull at a 2004 Scenic rodeo $100,000.
The 7th Circuit Court jury found that Longhorn Enterprises, Crazy Horse Tokala Society and Crazy Horse Tokala agent Richard Swain were negligent for injuries Fred Breeding suffered after the bull struck him in the chest.
The Rapid City Journal reports the jury awarded Fred Breeding, of Stuart, Fla., more than $460,000, but also found he was a voluntary rodeo contestant. A state statute caps the amount a rodeo competitor can collect to $100,000.
Fred Breeding's wife Naomi Breeding says her husband has a limited range of motion and can't sit for very long. He has been unable to return to his job as a private yaht captain.
