What was that about an ox?

From the Kinston Free Press
22 Jul 1898

LaGrange News — Little Pearl JONES was gored by Reubin ATMORE’s ox on Tuesday but not seriously hurt. Intervention in time saved her possibly from death.

And then, in the very same issue is this notice — Mrs. H.D. STANLY was gored by a cow yesterday.  Dr. HYATT attended her.  She was not seriously injured.
What was with the animals in Kinston that week?
