Buffalo in St. Joe

A former Chicago alderman, raises buffalo near St. Joseph, Michigan. Today, one of them got away. He jumped over a fence, and swam across the St. Joseph River. He scared a herd of deer, indirectly causing a car/deer collison. Then he headed into town.
"It was a risk to public safety," Banasik said. "It was running through traffic, vehicles were stopping, it was running through residential neighborhoods, and it ran past a playground that was occupied. We had made an attempt to use our cars to try to force back into the ravine, and it wouldn't stay there. Then, of course, when the officer got out of his vehicle and it charged, you had no choice."
According to the cop,
it took a lot of bullets to make it stop.
