I saw headline: "Hundreds of buffaloes drown 'fleeing lions' in Botswana"
My brain misinterpreted it as buffalo causing lions (which were fleeing from the buffallo) to drown.
Pretty much the opposite of what happened!
@mathr Haha. The same thing happened to me. I read the headline and thought, "wow, I guess those buffalo finally had had enough and decided to chase the lions into the river."
