GILFORD, N.H. (AP) — These buffalo have been roaming through a New Hampshire town.

Police in Gilford spent Tuesday afternoon corralling a herd of buffalo that got loose from a local farm. They say on Facebook the buffalo are "scared and running." They ask drivers not to approach the buffalo or blow their car horns.

The Bolduc Farm tells WMUR-TV nine of the buffalo have made it back. Police are still looking for a mother and two yearlings.

Robert Bolduc says the buffalo may have been startled by some construction work and found a weak spot in a fence.
