A man and woman in Georgia were surprised to find a buffalo standing in their back yard swimming pool on Saturday morning.
Chris Nonnemaker said he and his wife first noticed two holes in the pool's cover. When they went outside to see what had happened they noticed something was moving under the cover. When they pulled it back they learned their visitor was a buffalo.
The New York Daily News reported that, according to the local sheriff’s office, the animal was one of three buffalo that has escaped from a neighbour a few weeks ago. The other two had been recaptured quickly.
Nonnemaker video taped the animal in the pool, and as people pulled on a rope to encourage it up onto land. The frightened animal was later filmed struggling to get loose, while held to a tree by a rope.
WSBTV reported that the buffalo was returned to its owner, who said they had decided to put it down.
