Not Where The Buffalo Roam...

Press release from the Dillon Police Department:

What did the mother buffalo say when the baby buffalo ran away, “Bison”.

On June 1, 2023 at 7:27am the Dillon Police received a complaint about a baby buffalo laying in a yard at Legget St and Johnson St, in Dillon, MT. Dillon Police Officers, Beaverhead County Sheriff Deputies, Montana Live Stock Inspector and Montana Game Wardens responded to the area. It was determined that the baby buffalo is a domesticated animal not a wild buffalo.

The buffalo was captured without injury by the officers and deputies. The buffalo was reunited immediately with the owner.

Remember, when you come across wild animals anytime of the year, if you care leave them there.
