The escaped Water Buffalo's

The escaped Water Buffalo's

In the village there is a fairly large herd of water Buffalo, a hundred or more, and just after dark about twenty escaped through a gate onto the road around milking time and made their way up through the village center among the houses and among the home going commuter traffic. With black animals in the dark and on a corner a car and a buffalo met, the buffalo broke the car wind screen and dented the roof and bent a door pillar, in other words it wrote the car off.
 It was not long before they were all rounded up, but to anyone who is not familiar with Buffalo, they are reasonably placid, and if you encourage them with a stick too much, they will just lay down and not move, so patience and understanding is the byword when moving Buffalo.
