Oh, Those Crazy Buffaloes!

It appears that a 75-year-old Arizona resident was hospitalized after attempting to ride his pet buffalo.

MESA, Ariz. – Fire officials say a Cave Creek man who was trying to ride his pet buffalo was mauled by the animal after it bucked him off. The man, 75, was flown to a Scottsdale hospital after the incident at his home about 20 miles north of downtown Phoenix on Monday.

John Kraetz, a district chief for the Rural/Metro fire department, said the unidentified man suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The man owned two of the animals. Kraetz said he’s never been on a similar call.

I’m not sure what was more amazing: the fact that this nutjob was trying to ride a buffalo, or that MSNBC decided it was necessary to point out that this mysterious Mr. Kraetz had never been called out to rescue someone who attempted to ride a buffalo.

Maybe it’s just me, but I thought everyone rode their pet buffaloes!
