ONEIDA – More than two dozen buffaloes died on the Oneida Reservation.
And now an investigation is underway to determine if it happened purposely.
“My heart tells me no one did this on purpose,” said Oneida Farm area manager Michelle Doxtator.
Investigators say the animals died of dehydration.
According to authorities, the herd’s water supply was shut off, sometime during the Labor Day weekend.
Officials say it happened at the Oneida Farm’s west pasture.
That’s located in Outagamie County, on Cooper Road, off of Highway 54.
