WATERVILLE, Wash. —
Some people may lose sleep on the job or even lose the stapler off their desk. Dane Keane loses fingers.
The 52-year-old Washington rodeo coordinator 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 to a bull.
Keane, also a Douglas County commissioner, says he loves the rodeo but says it's "a little on the bad luck side" for him.
