This Cape buffalo bartender doesn’t look like he’ll put up with any shenanigans.
Would you buy a drink from a Cape buffalo bartender? He sure doesn’t look too friendly and the patrons of the bar don’t seem very excited about his presence.
Apparently, this buffalo recently showed up at the Hlosi Lodge in South Africa’s East Cape and started trying out the facilities. First, he took a dip in the swimming pool. Then, he took a nap directly in front of one of the guest suites. After waking up from his nap he went looking for a shady place to escape the sun and wandered into the lodge’s bar.
Human guests at the lodge were reportedly very frightened by the new Cape buffalo bartender, but not so frightened that they didn’t take the obligatory photos on their phones to post on social media.
Talk about a bull in a china shop!
Management at the lodge quickly realized that a Cape buffalo bartender is bad for business and everyone was relieved when the buffalo left the establishment for good and went back to the game reserve near the lodge where he lives.
Fortunately, and somewhat surprisingly considering the reputation buffalo have, nobody was injured by the buffalo and nothing was damaged during the short tenure of the Cape Buffalo bartender at the lodge.
