Judging by her facebook page, she is interested in environmentalism and protecting wildlife. I don't think she would want the cops to kill, kill, kill the buffalo.

That surprises me as I had always been led to believe that, despite their size, water buffaloes are very placid - at least that's what the missus has always said. I wonder what made it go off at her?

Nothing worse than an unmanageable buffet. Kill, kill, kill does seem a bit over the top.

Like many animals, water buffalo can be dangerous, if cornered for example, or if someone gets too near their young.

I once cornered a large green caterpillar with some baby caterpillars... very messy.
