A NORTH Georgia man said he and his wife found a neighbour's buffalo in their swimming pool.
Chris Nonnemaker said he and his wife noticed two holes in the pool's cover and went outside to take a look yesterday morning in White County. Mr Nonnemaker said they noticed something moving. When he pulled the pool cover back, Mr Nonnemaker saw a buffalo that had escaped from a neighbour's home.
Mr Nonnemaker called police and videotaped the animal's rescue, which involved ropes to help coax the buffalo out near the shallow end.
Deputies said the buffalo belonged to a neighbour and escaped with two others weeks ago. They said those two were caught shortly after they got away.
The owners of the buffalo that was in the pool decided to put the animal down.
