The buffalo is widely regarded as a very dangerous animal.

Specifically the African buffalo is known as "The Black Death" or "Widowmaker" because it kills over 200 people every year.  Sometimes more people are reported killed by buffalo than any other animal in the area.  Because they are considered game, they have been known to attack those pursuing them.
