Buddy, the so-called “beefalo” who escaped a slaughterhouse in Plymouth, Connecticut, over a month ago, is still on the run – eluding the people who are trying to capture him. According to multiple sources, the bison/cow cross has been spotted in a wooded area nearby, but he charges his would-be captors, causing them to retreat, reports CBS News.
There is hope that the 900-lb animal will be caught soon. On Monday, the Plymouth Police Department stated:
Beefalo Watch: Update 9/13/2020
Great news. Buddy was caught on video last night safe and sound while enjoying the food that was left for him. Photos will put put up tomorrow night with another update.
There is a safe place waiting for Buddy when he is finally secured. The Critter Creek Farm Sanctuary in Gainesville, Florida, has agreed to take the beefalo in. Last week, the police department stated:
The Plymouth Police Union is happy to announce the animal sanctuary Buddy the Beefalo will be attending. After much research, it was determined that Buddy should go to a sanctuary that not only has the best facilities but one that will truly meet his needs. We would like to thank Critter Creek Farm Sanctuary from Gainesville Florida for their generosity to gladly take our Plymouth Beefalo. I know some will be upset at this decision but before you make a judgement, I ask you to check out their website at www.crittercreekfarmsanctuary.org and you will see why this facility was chosen.
Lastly we appreciate all the support with the go fund me established for Buddy. We now ask that if you are still wanting to donate, please do so directly to Critter Creek Farm Sanctuary. Please help Buddy’s Buddies.
