SEQUIM, Wash., March 10 (UPI) -- Visitors to The Olympic Game Farm captured video of a buffalo enthusiastically shoving its face into their car window to feed on scraps of bread.

"Driving through the Olympic Game Farm, feeding the animals and a buffalo gets a little too friendly," Evans wrote in the video's description. Visitors are allowed to feed the animals, provided they only give them whole grain bread.
