Grottoes Man Trampled to Death

Posted: Updated:

A Grottoes man is dead after being trampled this weekend. 

When 59-year-old Sam Saufley didn't come home at his regular time on Saturday, his family went looking for him. 

A bull trampled him, and Rockingham County sheriff's deputies say the bull was shot and killed after the tragedy. 

Saufley was a respected farmer in the community, and a vocational teacher.
