CLEVELAND, Ga. (AP) — A north Georgia man says he and his wife found a neighbor’s buffalo in their swimming pool. Chris Nonnemaker says he and his wife noticed two holes in the pool’s cover and went outside to take a look Saturday morning in White County. Nonnemaker says they noticed something moving.  When he pulled the pool cover back, Nonnemaker saw a buffalo that had escaped from a neighbor’s home. Nonnemaker called police and videotaped the animal’s rescue, which involved ropes to help coax the buffalo out near the shallow end. Deputies say the buffalo belonged to a neighbor and escaped with two others weeks ago. They say those two were caught shortly after they got away.
