The buffalo then drags the police officer with his horns for a few meters on the road when a man clad in a pink shirt comes running by chasing the animal away.

In a scary incident, a police officer was attacked on his bike by a buffalo inside the premises of a police station in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal district on Sunday.

The police officer was entering the premises when suddenly from the opposite direction, the buffalo gorged the two-wheeler with his head, pushing him off the bike.

The buffalo then drags the man with his horns for a few meters on the road when a man clad in a pink shirt comes running by chasing the animal away.

However, the officer hasn’t sustained any injuries, as reported by ANI.

In another recent event, an 800- to 900-pound (360- to 410-kilogram) beefalo remains on the loose in Plymouth, Connecticut, US, weeks after it escaped while being loaded off a truck for slaughter.

The beefalo is a cross between a bison and domestic cattle and escaped from a meat processing business on Aug. 3, the Hartford Courant reported. Authorities attempted to confront an animal believed to be the beefalo Wednesday near Route 72 but retreated when the animal showed signs he would charge the officers.

In India, recently IFS officer Susanta Nanda took to Twitter to share a video of lions being chased by a herd of buffaloes in what he suggests is a perfect example of the hunter becoming hunted. Nanda shared the clip to explain how unity and victory are synonymous. Since the herd stood as a united front against the two lions, they were nothing in front of them.

The video starts with the two lions getting ready to attack the buffaloes who were grazing in the field. As the lions move forward and inch closer towards them, the entire herd seems to instinctively make a run for it. However, a few buffaloes then lead the herd to chase back the lions.
