When police arrived, Haas indicated that he found the cow femur somewhere in a pasture in Kona. Police said that Haas appeared intoxicated.

The attack was reportedly unprovoked. Four men were injured. Two were sent to the hospital for treatment. The other two men were hurt, but did not require medical attention.
