The victim, who was 82 and from Foulridge, was with his wife walking their dogs at Ivescar near Ribblehead Viaduct yesterday when the attack happened at around 1-45pm.
It is believed they may have disturbed the cattle, who had calves with them, and the man suffered serious injuries and died at the scene.
His 78-year-old wife was airlifted to Lancaster Royal Infirmary suffering from shock and bruising, but is not thought to be badly injured.
The National Park Authority recommends keeping dogs on leads when walking in the area and to exercise caution when close to livestock, particularly in the breeding season.
On the same day the Cave Rescue Organisation were called out to help a man in his 70s who had slipped and fallen while walking on the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, which is currently closed to the public.
