In Africa and Asia, buffalos are not respected as the dangerous animals they are because people have become so accustomed to seeing them roaming around: and besides, they only eat plants, don’t they? Wrong! Provoke an African Cape Buffalo and they will angrily charge you and severely (or even fatally) injure you with their strong and sharp horns.
Most people also do not know that these exceptionally dangerous animals cause the most deaths to human beings in Africa. So, if you happen to find yourself any where near Africa, do yourself a favor and stay away from the African Cape Buffalo which kills around 200 people every year!
