Buffaloes roam streets after bolting from film set

Residents in Sydney were startled to see two water buffaloes on the loose in a city street yesterday.

The animals had escaped from a nearby park in Newtown where they were being filmed for an advertisement.

The pair managed to roam for two miles - and trample some flowers - before they were rounded up by a group of firefighters.

"They’ve made a mess of my azaleas,” Sue Salier told The Sydney Daily Telegraph.
