Yesterday, our morning started with this email from one of our Assitant Principals:
We may have some tardiness this morning due to a train and a buffalo. Please excuse your students…."
According to the news, eight buffalo got away from Hub City Livestock Auction. One of them paid a visit to Melgaard Park, one to Simmons Elementary, and one to Eisenhower Circle. Apparently the trucker left the gate open at about 7 o'clock in the morning. The buffalo caused quite a bit of excitement as people were going to work and parents were taking their children to school. By 4:30 in the afternoon, all had been corralled and all the law enforcement officials were back to their regularly scheduled duties.
While this may be the middle of the prairie,
this is the 3rd largest city in our state...
only in South Dakota!
