Tracy Whalen (right), 38, of Railroad Flats was gored, mauled and tossed in the air by a neighbor's buffalo on Sunday afternoon. Evidently, Geronimo, the buffalo, wandered over the fence and into Whalen's yard. Whalen's 12 year old daughter was out in the yard and when her mother came out to shoo the animal away, the buffalo charged, tossed her in the air and tore her thighs. Whalen was airlifted into town and taken to the hospital. Luella Thompson, mother, is with Whalen in the hospital.
