American buffalo ‘Tyson the Bison’ spotted roaming Chicago suburbs


An American buffalo is on the loose, casually wandering the Chicago suburbs in search of a new home.

The Lake County, Illinois Sheriff’s Office said in a social media message that the family buffalo – known as “Tyson the Bison” – fled his home in September and continued to graze in suburban Chicago’s Lake and McHenry counties. There have been known spotting of the buffalo before, most recently when a photographer captured Tyson in Cary, Ill., Making the buffalo a local celebrity.

The owners of the buffalo are hoping for a snowfall so that they can follow the animal and bring it home safely. The animal had just been delivered from another farm before going on the run.

Protection:A leopard grabbed her son so this mother chased the animal until it let go of the boy.

Rescue of filmed animals: Sometimes help comes from unexpected places.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is urging pedestrians to stay away from the bison and notify authorities.
