- Native Americans ate buffalo for food. But the white man killed the animals for sport, thus depleting the food supply for the Indians.
- When crowds go insane and rush into a stadium or a Walmart, they are referred to as a “herd of stampeding buffaloes”.
- There is an imaginary “purple buffalo” which is an integral part of the story line for The Neverending Story. Great family entertainment. I prefer the movies, but there is also an animated TV series.
FYI. “They are well known for their high level of intelligence and intuition Apparently when a person tries to play dead, the buffalo will urinate into the canal of their ear because it causes intense itching, forcing them to snap out of it and give themselves up!”
