The Largest Pet Ever – Buffalo Bailey Jr.

I’ve heard about people having lizards, snakes and koalas as pets, but a buffalo? Are you serious? Jim and Linda Sautner from Alberta in Canada owns the largest domestic pet in the world, a 1,600 lbs buffalo named Bailey Jr. They have raised him since he was a baby, and he is still chilling out inside their house where he always wants to cuddle or suck on Jim’s hand, and when Jim goes for a ride, Bailey Jr. loves to join.

He literally sits inside the truck – unbelievable. Buffaloes live up to 30 years, so I guess he will still be around for some time. Linda says that “it’s pretty interesting being married to a buffalo whisperer. The issue is the same for these two buddies; a man and a grizzly bear. The grizzly was even his best man at the wedding.

Daughter, sister, wife, mother and writer. I spend half of my free time writing and the other half reading contemporary literature. I like to start my day with half an hour of yoga and then I head over to my desk with a cup of green tea to start working on my sci fi novel. On weekends I like to head over to the country side for a breath of fresh air and to catch up with my mom.

    Love him! He’s beautiful. But I have to ask the obvious question….is he house trained?? And if not, how do you handle all that poop?!

    He’s the cleanest buffalo i’ve ever seen, since the ones in the wild always look so mangy.
