NY man recovering after being gored by farm bison
RICHMONDVILLE, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities say a man who was gored by a bison at the Grumpy Buffalo Farm has been released from an Albany hospital.
The Schoharie (skoh-HAYR'-ee) County Sheriff's Office tells local media outlets that the 34-year-old man suffered a wound to his abdomen on Saturday while trying to herd buffalo into a pen at the farm in rural Richmondville, 40 miles west of Albany.
The man, whose name hasn't been released, spent a couple days at Albany Medical Center Hospital before being released.
Deputies say the man was injured while he and others were preparing to load about 10 bison onto a cattle trailer for transportation to New Jersey. One of the animals charged the man and impaled him on one of its horns.
