Man injured by dead water buffalo!!!

Just goes to show you can never fully trust a wild animal - even long after it's dead!!!

Man trapped for hours after stuffed buffalo head falls

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.”

Nice. I went to high school in Tavernier. It's just south of Key Largo on US1.

I have a stuffed shark that I caught off of Tavernier that fell on someone's head while I was in college. Maybe Tavernier is like the Bermuda Triangle of mounted animals??

There's nothing wrong with mounting that special fish, as this nationally syndicated talk show proves.

This would have made a good Germany or Florida. Oh well. That would be an embarrassing 911 call to make.
