HAMILTON, Ind. (AP) — Police have warned residents of a northern Indiana community not to approach a herd of bison that escaped from a nearby farm.
The Steuben (stoo-BEN’) County Sheriff’s office says the bison escaped Sunday from a fenced-in area at a farm near Pleasant Lake, a village about 30 miles north of Fort Wayne.
Pleasant Lake Buffalo Farm owner Cathy Sanders tells WANE-TV 58 bison escaped and began roaming the 300-acre property. She says eight bison had been recaptured as of 2 p.m. Monday.
Police in the adjacent town of Hamilton warned residents about the escaped bison, urging them not to approach the animals.
