A small herd of roaming buffalo narrowly escaped a trip to the meat cutters on Sunday morning after they were captured and returned to their home pasture as a months-long journey came to an end south of Sundance.
The marauding critters began their swing through the Black Hills last fall, when they escaped from their home near Deerfield Reservoir in South Dakota. Since then, the herd has been grazing their way across the Black Hills, stirring up delight and frustrating landowners along the way.
Once the animals ended up grazing the ditch along Highway 116 near the Weston County line, one of the owners, with professional butchers in tow, arrived to help put an end to the journey. Faced with a choice between shooting the animals or trying to round them up and haul them back home – which was an unlikely proposition given the lack of facilities designed to handle the uncooperative beasts – the group decided to make an attempt at gathering them. With help from local rancher Alan Mills, the assembled wranglers were able use a make-shift barrier to push the strays into his corrals, where they were loaded and hauled back to South Dakota.
