Graffiti vandals, apparently animal-lovers, recently attacked one of the county's few restaurants that serves buffalo meat. Restaurant owner Benjamin Bennani said someone smashed a $500 sign in front of his G&G International Pizza / House of Buffalo and left a cardboard sign bearing the words "buffalo killer" in his window. The vandalism, which occurred May 1, is being investigated by the police, Bennani said. Bennani opened his restaurant at 1125 Victoria St.

Bison hunting, once commonplace in the American West until the species was nearly wiped out, resumed just outside the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park after a 15-year ban. On a bitterly cold morning , a 17-year-old, hunting with his family, killed the first animal. The hunt will allow up to 50 of the Plains bison, often called buffalo in North America, to be killed in the three-month season.

About 1,500 buffalo from a herd used in "Dances With Wolves" escaped from a ranch by walking up and over fences covered by towering snowdrifts. Spurred by fears the animals will spread disease, Gov. William Janklow asked volunteers on snowmobiles to help round them up. Most of the animals were nudged about 25 miles toward home, although at least 200 refused to cross a road that served as a major barrier between them and the ranch.

For five days, five buffalo that had wandered away from their corral roamed around the tract homes of Rancho Santa Margarita, drawing posses of would-be cowboys and sending some residents scurrying for safety and others for cameras. The buffalo hunt ended Sunday when one of the herd's owners, John Tice, drove the five back to their corral in Holy Jim Canyon, animal control officials said.

Doug Propst maneuvered his Jeep down a dry ravine through scrub oak, prickly pear cactus and scorched grass. One hundred yards away, dust hung in the air like baking powder flung skyward. "That's them," he exclaimed, squinting into Santa Catalina Island's shimmering, mid-morning light. As the vehicle eased over a knoll, the object of his search appeared on the valley floor.

Greer the buffalo wasn't supposed to get that big. The man who sold him to Gary and Anne Moll said he was a "miniature buffalo" who had already reached his full size, standing 4 feet high at the hump, the Molls said. But grow he did. Greer is now an enormous furry full-grown male, standing 6 feet at the hump. He weighs close to 2,000 pounds and Gary Moll estimates he hits 35 mph in a dead run. Picture a Volkswagen Beetle with horns, grunting and running around in the backyard.

Bubba the buffalo doesn't like to rush things, when it comes to love. * Three years ago, he was brought to Hart Park in Newhall to sow the seeds of a new generation of buffalo at the park, formerly the estate of silent Western star William S. Hart. At that time there were seven female buffalo in the park, now owned by the county, and one male, but the lone male was up there in years and it seemed his baby-making days were long over.

A cacophony of clanging metal shattered the calm at Santa Catalina Island's working ranch before the buffalo cow, with a low grunt, gave in to the grip of the aging squeeze chute. Her chocolate mane was matted with burrs, her eyes afflicted with a touch of infection that a ranch hand tended with a casual toss of "pink eye" powder. In a nearby corral, a dozen waiting bulls ran nervously in tight circles, raising a slow-moving dust cloud into the stillness from the hay-strewn ground.

Rookie defenseman Tyler Myers scored two of Buffalo's three power-play goals and assisted on the other in the Sabres' 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.

Matt Stajan and John Mitchell scored third-period goals for Toronto, and Vesa Toskala stopped 28 shots. The Maple Leafs have lost four of their last five. The 19-year-old Myers, second among NHL rookies with 26 points, scored his fifth and sixth goals from close range against Toskala.
