Angry African Bufallo Charges at Truck

I’ve heard that lone buffaloes in the African wild are some of the deadliest creatures in Africa and this video seems to validate this claim.

According to http://www.africa-wildlife-detective.com here is the reason why lone buffaloes are very dangerous..

The reason early trophy hunters included the African buffalo, as one of the big five is that they were considered to be one of the most dangerous species to hunt.

When hunted by humans, buffalo have a reputation for circling back on their pursuers and counter attacking. The danger lies with older males who usually live away from the herd. Their “attack is the best defense” strategy can make them very dangerous.

Old buffalo males tend to wander solitary or to form small groups of up to about half a dozen and are probably more easily provoked into an attack. The reason for this relates to the fact that they lack the safety in numbers of the bigger herds. Buffalo in herds are placid, although some of the old bulls in the herds tend to be easily angered and prone to charge when disturbed.

Large herds are usually very relaxed and unlikely to attack.
