SPOKANE, Wash. — For the second time in recent months, two bison broke out of their enclosure and went for a stroll around Spokane’s South Hill.

The bison – Hazel and Baxter – live on a farm near Glenrose and 23rd, but made their way to Freya and 22nd Thursday morning.

Hazel and Baxter escaped their enclosure in late July, making it all the way to Underhill Park in East Central. At that time, Spokane Police responded to wrangle up the animals and get them back to their owners.

SPD told 4 News Now the bison were captured and taken back to their farm Thursday mid-morning. It is not clear where they were found.
