2 very good reasons to live in Buffalo, nothing like that ever happens here. I just get many Bambi's in my yard.
I grew up in East Aurora, about 20 miles from Buffalo. We had plenty of bear in the woods around South Wales and Emory Park. I remember a very large brown bear strolling down the center of Olean Road. I can also remember, when I was a kid, they found some very large alligators in the sewers in Buffalo and took them to the Buffalo Zoo.
As you say, the most common event is "Bambi" intrusion. We have had plenty of them in the center of town. I remember a large buck jumping through the plate glass window of Seaman Hood and Morey on Main Street. (is that an ad? sorry!! I think they are out of business though).
