Default Ever see a Buffalo in a convertible car? I did on Friday










So I'm driving home on Friday when I drive by a guy sitting in his convertible with his Buffalo riding shotgun beside him and his dog parked by the side of the highway So I turn around when I get the chance to get a better look and to take a few pictures because I figure nobody will believe me without some concrete evidence The Buffalo's name is Bailey Jr and you've probably seen him and his owner on the TV or other form of media. Bailey Jr is so tame that he even spends time in the house watching TV etc. Definately not something you see everyday

I now know I did see what I thought I saw a couple years ago. They were driving on a side road south of Villenueve off Highway 44. Wasn't sure until now.

Yep that's Bailey #2. His owner Jim had a heart attack a few years ago if I remember correctly and seems to be doing well now.

First thought was - that HAS to be photoshopped.

The floorboards in that car surely must be reinforced though. I'm surprised the vehicle isn't running half tilted over like a slammed cruiser out of south-central LA.

I'd still have to see it live to be a believer.

Nope it's not photoshopped. The car was just parked there with the buffalo standing in it. Check out the link Enigma posted

That would be so awesome, driving down the Deerfoot Trail during Stampede Week.

The animal needs a set of HID driving lights mounted on his forehead though.

Bailey Jr does road shows, have the mayor or whoever sets up the Stampede to have him come down for a visit.
