Because Canada, this 1900-pound pet buffalo rides around in a modified ’79 Pontiac
From across a field in Spruce Grove, Alberta, the scene is pure science fiction. A shaggy-haired beast of Brobdingnagian proportions stands motionless, effortlessly hovering across the snowy tundra at 55 mph. Squint beyond the flurrying drifts, and you can see the mammoth creature isn’t actually hovering. It’s standing on top of a 1979 Pontiac Parisienne.
This is no dream brought on by a Great Northern bender of Canadian whiskey and maple-glazed beef jerky. This is the story about Bailey Jr., a pet buffalo that enjoys riding in cars. (Don’t we all?)
