Buffalo on the run!

PIKESVILLE, Md. (AP) - A herd of buffalo somehow got loose and wandered around an upscale neighborhood Tuesday, disrupting traffic and alarming homeowners before officers managed to corral them in a tennis court. More than a dozen police cars and a police helicopter were used to herd the roughly 10 beasts, authorities said.

"Somehow they figured it out; I've got to give a lot of credit to the creativity of our officers," police spokesman Shawn Vinson said. Authorities have identified the owner of the buffalo but did not immediately release the person's name. A call to a nearby farm was answered by a woman who said the buffalo belonged to her husband. She declined to give her name.

Funny...I thought a sea gull flying around my house yesterday was weird! That picture of the buffalo looks photoshopped but I believe it.
