Buffaloes on a road - level 3

Buffaloes on a road - level 3

30-08-2013 14:00

Now this is definitely not something you see every day.

Yeah, this group of bikers in Illinois were left stranded on a road. Well, because a herd of buffaloes started stampeding towards them. Yeah, that's pretty scary.

The group of five riders had been riding along Iron Mountain Road when traffic stops.

However, luckily, the buffaloes carried on with their journey and no one was hurt.

And it was a lucky escape. The typical weight of a buffalo can range from 700 to 2200 pounds (318 to 998 kilograms). Yeah, that would have hurt.

Difficult words: stranded (stuck), herd (group), stampede (run fast), range (be between).
