A buffalo drawing its last breaths of life was able to severely injure a hunter by goring him twice before dying, leaving him hospitalized.
According to reports, Australian hunter Chris Mcsherry came across the buffalo while bow hunting in Port Bradshaw. He shot two arrows at the beast in hopes of taking it down, only for it to escape the scene.
Then Mcsherry and a friend of his tracked the buffalo by following its blood trail and eventually found it “in a thick piece of bush”.
In a social media post, the hunter explained how his friend thot the animal with a “couple more bolts” in order to finish it off.
But the buffalo was not done yet.
It charged Mcsherry and injured him two times before collapsing and dying, leaving the man with two large and horrifying wounds on his leg and his behind.
The man was inflicted what he described as “decent wounds” in the battle. He was taken to Darwin hospital, where he went through two surgeries for his wounds. He would likely need skin grafts in the near future.
Elenie Bromot, his partner, made a social media post, reading:
“Just wanted to give everyone an update, Chris Mcsherry is doing fine and is having surgery as we speak, thank you to everyone that has offered support to me and the girls and Ty, I am very grateful means a lot, and thank you to everyone thats has gone to see if he is ok in Darwin hospital, i really appreciate you all as i can not be there with him xoxo hopefully is home soon, will keep you updated [sic].”
“Buff is dead I’m alive (this time) and hope to be back with my family and friends soon thanks for all the well wishes on other posts I appreciate the love and support and will live to HUNT another day.”
