2 dozen buffalo dead from dehydration - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

2 dozen buffalo dead from dehydration


ONEIDA (WKOW) -- The Oneida Nation says the cause of death of 25 buffalo two months ago was due to dehydration.

Tribe officials say the herd's water supply was shut off, but they're not sure how that happened.  The tribe says one employee was disciplined for not following policy to check on the herd.

A lock has since been placed on the current pump to prevent it from being turned off.
