ELROY, Wis. (KMSP) - A herd of approximately 120 bison are on the loose in southern Juneau County, Wisconsin. The bison reportedly escaped their enclosure and are running free in the area near Elroy, Union Center and Wonewoc.
The herding and stampeding characteristics of the animals poses a threat to the safety of the public. The Juneau County sheriff’s office is warning people to use caution while traveling in the area as they attempt to contain and capture the animals.
Authorities say the animals should not be approached and says motorists should stay clear they encounter any on the roadway.
