An Oklahoma man has died after he was found on the ground inside a cattle pen at a Creekstone Farms processing plant in Arkansas City.

Emergency crews responded to a call of a man hurt by a cow at Creekstone Farms around 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

The man is identified as Richard Gates, 57, of Blackwell.  Paramedics took him to the hospital where he later died.
