A local farm worker was gored by a buffalo at the Grumpy Buffalo Farm in Richmondville on Saturday, several news outlets report.

According to an account in the Schenectady Daily Gazette, the 34-year-old man was wounded as he and a group of other workers were preparing to load 10 buffalo onto a cattle trailer. One of the animals charged the man, impaling him in the abdomen.

The Schoharie News reports that the man -- who has been identified as Richmondville resident Brian Ware -- was released from Albany Medical Center today

Last summer, 10 bison escaped from the farm and were roaming around the neighborhood for almost a week. According to a post on the farm's Facebook page, one male (Uncle Danny, shown above) and two females returned to the farm without incident. Seven others were shot because of the risk they posed to the local community.
