DEPUTY INJURED

John AndersonAugust 8, 2022

A man suspected to have been killed by the bison that injured an Ellsworth County Deputy was found by his aunt on Monday morning. The man’s aunt, who found her nephew, 56-year-old Scott Schroeder of Bushton dead in a pen. She said she thought that a bison had killed him. The location of the body was in a row of trees north of K-4 highway and 5th Road. The location of the deputy injured Sunday night was about 1/4 of a mile south of where Schroeder’s body was found on Monday. It is likely that Schroeder was killed before the deputy was injured. The deputy underwent surgery Sunday night at Salina Regional Health Center and is in stable condition. A Rice County Deputy arrived at the scene of the attack Sunday night as it occurred, and the bison was put down when it appeared that it was preparing to charge at the injured deputy.
