Wacky… But True, May 16th

A fugitive who’s wanted in North Carolina accidentally dialed 911 while he was in upstate New York, and he’s now behind bars as deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s office arrested 53-year-old Jesse Graham Friday night in Lyons, a town east of Rochester. Graham reportedly is wanted in Mooresville, North Carolina, on several unspecified charges and is being held in the Wayne County Jail awaiting to be transferred to North Carolina.

And police called in a crane to lift five fugitive water buffalo off a highway in western Germany during an operation that lasted about nine hours. The buffalo, including two calves, escaped from a field Sunday night and walked onto the A3 highway near Leverkusen. The road was closed temporarily. Police said they initially corralled the animals using two trucks and several patrol cars, but weren’t able to get them off the road. A zoo vet was brought in to tranquilize the animals before they were lifted. One bull that had got stuck in a crash barrier had to be freed, but was unhurt. A Cologne fire service crane removed the animals from the highway and they were taken back to their field. (Source: abcnews.go.com; Image: apnews,com)
