Rogue Bison On The Loose In Arkansas

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — Two buffaloes are on the run in a central Arkansas city after authorities failed to round up all of an escaped herd.

Hot Springs Cpl. Sonia Luzader said Friday that police know the general location of the 2,000-pound animals but that no sightings were reported overnight. Six buffaloes escaped from a farm and spent Thursday roaming neighborhoods and avoiding sheriff’s deputies, officers and volunteers.

One animal was hit by a car and returned to the farm. Luzader says three that were tranquilized Thursday evening were left in a pasture to help attract the others.

No human injuries were reported in the city of 35,000 people, known as former President Bill Clinton’s boyhood home.

Hot Springs is a popular tourist spot with natural hot springs, a national park and horse track.
