NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. — A buffalo roamed onto a highway in the Niagara region today and died after being hit by two cars.

Police say three buffaloes got loose from a nearby farm and one made its way onto the QEW around 6 a.m. in Niagara Falls, Ont.

Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says two drivers sustained minor injuries in the crash.

He says the buffaloes have been on the run for a few days.

Schmidt says two remain loose and asked drivers to keep an eye out for a "big, black thing" on the road.
