AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man sued a bar in downtown Austin after he was hit by a stuffed longhorn that fell off the wall.

The longhorn was hanging on the wall at The Ranch, a bar owned by Bob Woody when the mounting failed and fell on the unsuspecting bar patron. An attorney for the man said a jury awarded him $589,000 but ultimately, the parties reached an agreement to settle the matter out of court.
