McEntire's relatives tried for several weeks to get local authorities to do something about the animals, but the matter got bogged down by jurisdiction issues.
Since the animals were not native species, the state Division of Natural Resources did not have authority to deal with them.
Eventually, the state Department of Agriculture stepped up to handle the buffalo.
In early February, state officials captured the animals and moved them to a quarantined area.
According to the auction site, the animals are being sold in "as is" condition.
Both animals have tested negative for tuberculosis and brucellosis. They have been fed good-quality hay and some grain.
The buffalo are currently being held at the Lakin State Farm in West Columbia, Mason County. Officials would like to have them moved from state property by April 5.
The auction requires 48-hour advance notice for pickup and specifies that the buyer must have an adequate facility to house the buffalo.
Potential buyers can schedule an inspection of the buffalo before bidding by calling 304-558-2211, extension 2520.
