Actually, Even If He Had Been 'Driving Across The American Plains'...

...he'd still have been surprised:
If he had been driving across the American Plains, Jon Maccoll might not have been surprised.
But to be confronted by a stampede of buffalo in the middle of a road in Derbyshire in the early hours, caught him totally off-guard.
Wrong sort of buffalo! Ah, well. It is the 'Mail', after all...
The badly injured buffalo was shot by a police marksman.
Lucky for it this was Derbyshire then, and not Yorkshire!

PTSD, nightmares and flashbacks? Sounds like post acid-tripping to me. Not much of a security guard is he? Would you want him guarding your premises? Any trouble and he might run away.

A country of Mummy's Boys we've become.

Lest we forget, 'whiplash and hurt feelings' make far more for ambulance chasing lawyers than their pathetic clients.

They should have known it was a bison. You can not wash your hands in a buffalo.

Bunny notes that maybe he wasn't...?
