Water buffalo running in downtown Pune

This was my first trip to downtown Pune. We got money exchanged and bought me some native clothing. While walking a group of four water buffalos came galloping down the middle of a major street. Digital cameras take a bit to get started so we just got a snap of them as they faded into the distance. I wonder which highway they decided to take. It is not unusual to see animals wandering around, but they are usually meandering or eating out of garbage cans and stay off the largest streets. Another thing. To prevent runaway the leader of a heard usually has his/her front and back leg tied together in such a way they can walk easily but not run.
