The key issue with Buffalo is management. They need heavy duty fencing, and stout pens or corrals to handle them. The old saying is you can herd a Buffalo any place they want to go. And they are great fence jumpers. Many Buffaloes, especially as they grow older have nasty temperaments and have been known to attack men both on foot or horseback. There are a few instances of persons being killed by Buffalo.
