Makkal Osai reported that a Spicejet Indian airliner crashed into a stray buffalo during take-off from the Surat airport in north India.
Fortunately, no one was injured.
However, the buffalo died in the incident which happened last Thursday evening.
Flight officials said the buffalo could not be seen against the dark background.
Apparently, poorly maintained fences at some Indian airports resulted in animals straying onto the runways.
