Beware: 120 buffalo running loose in Juneau County

Posted:

MAUSTON, Wis. (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies are warning motorists and others to be on the lookout for dozens of buffalo on the loose in southern Juneau County.

The sheriff's department says about 120 buffalo escaped from an enclosure and are roaming free near Elroy, Union Center and Wonewoc.

By mid-afternoon Friday, the agency said the herd was on private property and its "caretakers" were making arrangements to get the animals back into fenced areas.

Authorities say the animals should not be approached. Drivers should steer clear of them on the roadways.
