Thunderous clangs pierce the air as the giant animals rattle their way through the corral — a system of roofless, metal chutes — jumping so high their entire heads can be seen from the ground. Volunteers open and close a series of metal doors from a wooden walkway above as each buffalo is coaxed through the system.
