HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - A herd of buffalo were on the loose on Thursday in Hot Springs.
Dozens of animal control and law enforcement officers spent the afternoon working to contain the animals, but it proved to be a very difficult task.
By Thursday evening, one buffalo was captured, three were tranquilized and contained to a field, and two are still on the loose.
It was the last thing Hot Springs Animal Control officers expected to see in this subdivision. Six buffalo, grazing in the woods, running through peoples' back yards.
"We have had an occasional cow escape within the city limits but this is my first experience with a buffalo issue," said Corporal Sonia Luzader with the Hot Springs Police Department.
Corporal Luzader kept the media informed throughout the day as the stubborn beasts refused to cooperate with anyone.
