: Just a guess:
: The bison or buffalo is not a meek animal as it is quite threatening looking; so maybe the term "buffaloed", which means "to intimidate", is from the animal's display of confidence or authority.
Where might I find the beginning of the use of the term buffaloed. Doing great so far!
