Buffaloes trample 2 boys in western Minn.

BATTLE LAKE, Minn. — Authorities in western Minnesota say buffaloes trampled two young boys who wandered into a fenced-in area near here, west of Amor.

The Otter Tail County sheriff's office says the boys, both age 3, wandered Friday from their Battle Lake home into a secure area where the buffalo were being kept.

The boys’ mother found the children, but not before the boys were trampled by several of the buffalo.

The condition of the boys is not known. Both boys were conscience when officers arrived on scene, said a press release from the sheriff's office. Arrangements were being made to airlift one of the boys to Fargo, N.D.
