Roaming buffalo have created a number of calls to Calhoun 911 regarding the animals creating problems for property owners.

A Hog Knob resident reported buffalo on their property Saturday, disturbing their animals, while earlier reports have indicated damage to lawns and gardens.

DNR's Natural Resource Police officer Charles Stevens and West Virginia State Police responded to Saturday's call, indicating they might have to shoot some of the animals because they have charged at individuals.

Five to eight buffalo owned by Route 5 resident Frank Masiarczyk have left his property and been reported on Hog Knob, Route 5 east, and the Rt. 7 Russett/Steer Creek area several times during the past several months.

A Calhoun Magistrate Court report says that Masiarczyk was cited on March 31 by DNR police officer Charles Stephens for 'unlawful running at large laivestock.'
