BATTLE LAKE, Minn. – Authorities in western Minnesota say buffaloes trampled two young boys who wandered into a fenced-in area near here, west of Amor, on Friday morning.

The Otter Tail County sheriff’s office says the boys, both age 3, wandered Friday from their Battle Lake home into a secure area where the buffalo were being kept.

The boys’ mother found the children, but not before the boys were trampled by several of the buffalo.
