Buffalos roam free in Hot Springs

Staff Writer

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — Two buffaloes are still unaccounted for after authorities in an Arkansas tourist city failed to round up all of an escaped herd.
Hot Springs police say six buffaloes escaped from a nearby farm Thursday and spent the day roaming through neighborhoods and avoiding sheriff's deputies, officers and volunteers. One of the animals was hit by a car and returned to the farm. Three were tranquilized Thursday evening.
The whereabouts of the other two are unknown and calls to the Hot Springs police and Garland County Sheriff's Office weren't immediately returned Friday.
Residents reported that the 2,000-pound animals did minor damage to yards throughout the day. No human injuries were reported
