They are the "same" by the fact that they belong in the same Family being Bovidae. However, more specifically, yaks and water buffalo are not the same, actually. Yak and water buffalo are two distinct species of bovids. One lives in Nepal and Mongolia, the other is found in the south and east regions of Asia, like in Taiwan and India.
They are both big hairy creatures related to cattle and deer

A water buffalo is one of the two types of buffalo, the other being the African Buffalo (Cape Buffalo). The American Bison, despite being called "Buffalo", are not actually buffalo at all.
Besides domestic cattle, the subfamily bovine includes bison, water buffalo, yak, and the four-horned and spiral-horned antelopes.
The animals that are the most closely related to the domestic bovine is the gaur, Cape and Water Buffalo, muskox, banteng, gayal, yak, and the Zebu.
Yak? Mountain goat? They're both fuzzy and have horns (I'm pretty sure the yak does..) Yeah, you are right, but I think the idea is a bison. The Americans even call bison buffalo. But real buffalo have much bigger horns.
Nothing: Water Buffalo and domestic cattle have a different chromosome count.
The relationship is that they are both members of the Cattle family
The Bovine family is commonly associated with domestic cattle but also includes the bison, the water buffalo, the yak, and the four-horned and spiral-horned antelopes.

No, they are two separate species: Cape Buffalo are from Africa and possess the scientific name Syncerus caffer and Water Buffalo are from Asia, with the scientific name Bubalus bubalis. Cape Buffalo are also larger and more muscular than water buffalo, and look quite different from Water Buffalo. For instance: A cape buffalo's horns come together at the poll and curve out and up on either side of their heads. A water buffalo's horns grow… Read More
I, personally, would not try to stop them. However, nothing much is likely to come of it as the cape and water buffalo have a different number of genes as compared to bison, yaks, and domestic cattle.
