UPDATE: Some bison captured, some still loose

Some of the 17 bison that got loose this morning from a Paris farm have been captured but others are still on the loose.

Eight of the 17 were coralled as of about 1 p.m., a Sheriff’s Department media release said. Another nine are stilll loose northeast of Paddock Lake. Duties, Department of Natural Resources, local animal control experts, veterinarians and farmers are attempting to round-up these animals.

The animals were able to get loose when a fallen tree comprised their enclosure, the media release said. The farm is on Highway NN in Paris.

People are advised to stay away from the bison, which the release describes as “very large undomesticated animals.”
