He’s Really A Gentleman”
Meet Wild Thing, the 11-year-old pet buffalo that has its own room inside Ronnie and Sherron Bridges’ Texas home.
“He’s a house pet,” Ronnie told InsideEdition.com. “Outside, he plays really rough but inside the house, he’s really a gentleman.”
Ronnie, 68, who calls himself the “Buffalo Whisperer” was forced to sell his herd of 52 buffalo in 2004 to pay for medical bills.
But the Bridges ended up keeping Wild Thing, who was just a 3-month-old calf at the time.
“It was kind of my idea to bring Wild Thing in the house,” Sherron said. “We bring the dogs in the house, and [Ronnie] said, ‘You don’t understand – he’s a buffalo, we might not have a house left.’ [But] we brought him in the house, and ever since then, he’s been in the house.”
Ronnie explained their buffalo has his own room in the house, and a couple other rooms he is welcome to roam as long as they move the furniture. Wild Thing also loves watching television, and even though he can’t turn it on himself or change the channels on his own, he prefers to watch cartoons.
Wild Thing is also potty trained, although Ronnie said he somehow learned to use the bathroom outside on his own.
“He never uses the bathroom in the house,” he explained. “He walks right out, potties, [then] turns around and comes right back in the house. It amazes me because how would you potty train a buffalo?”
