Runaway buffalo found in neighbour’s pool

Chris Nonnemaker and his wife, who are from Georgia, discovered the beast after going outside to inspect their pool after spotting two holes in the protective sheet, which was moving around.

The couple got the shock of their lives, however, when they realised that underneath was a buffalo – which had mysteriously disappeared two weeks earlier.

The Nonnemakers’ neighbours had kept three buffalo on their property, but all three had escaped earlier this month.

Two were found shortly after the escape, but the third had not turned up – until it was found in the pool.

The emergency services were called and helped extracate the animal using a series of ropes.

However, the story did not have such a happy ending after it emerged that the owners had decided to have the buffalo put down for safety reasons.

Mr Nonnemaker said: ‘It is sad but this cow had a history of getting out so the owner did not want anyone to get hurt.

‘He decided to put her down.’
