Man trapped for hours after stuffed buffalo head falls
By Cammy Clark
TAVERNIER, Fla. — Jim Harris has thrown Hells Angels out of Maine’s biggest biker bar and spent four years in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam War — and never suffered a scratch.
But when a stuffed water buffalo head with large horns fell off the wall, it took four 911 responders to pull the trophy from his lap.
“This is so embarrassing to get my ass kicked by a dead water buffalo,” Harris said.
The 56-year-old was in his comfy recliner sipping milk and watching the 11 o’clock news in his rented waterfront home in Tavernier when “I leaned over to turn on the lamp and ka-pow,” he said.
“Bubba,” the 200-pound head of a water buffalo shot in Africa, fell off the wall and landed on his head and right side. The impact knocked him out.
“I guess it’s payback for the buffalo, but I’m not even the guy who shot him,” Harris said. “It’s not even mine. I don’t even like hunting.”
