Wash. rodeo coordinator loses 2nd finger on job

WATERVILLE, Wash. (AP) - August 25, 2008 The 52-year-old Washington man was helping to secure a bull in a bucking chute Saturday evening when his finger got caught between a rope and a metal fence pole. His left index finger ended up being amputated at the second joint.

But it wasn't his first time losing a finger on the job. In 2000, Keane lost the end of his right ring finger and was flipped into the air by a bull.

Keane says he loves the rodeo but says it's "a little on the bad luck side" for him.
