Here is a link to a story I found on News 24
I would be curious to know what other cammers, who have come into contact with African Buffalo think.
Personally, without making light of a tragic death, I find this story to be somewhat suspect unless the buffalo had been so taunted and harrassed by the vehicle and its occupants that it behaved completely out of character, leading to this tragedy.
I do not believe that a buffalo would mount the back of a vehicle in order to attack an occupant, it would most likely attack the vehicle. I have on several occassions had to chase buffalo from camps (once even in an electric golf cart) and never did the buffalo react in any other way other than run away.
I am aware that vehicles have been attacked by buffalo before, however the buffalo has seen the vehicle as the threat and dont actively seek the occupants.
