PLYMOUTH, CT (WFSB) – The Plymouth Police Union has started a GoFundMe page to help purchase “Buddy the Beefalo” from his owner.
The Beefalo, which is a cross between a bison and domestic cattle, has been missing in Plymouth since August.
The animal escaped an animal processing facility nearby, police said.
Police say once in custody, Buddy will be released to an animal sanctuary.
“There is a lot of public concern regarding what will happen to Buddy once he is caught,” Plymouth police said. “The goal of the Plymouth Police Union is to purchase Buddy to alleviate any worries the public may have about his welfare.”
Officials say any money received over the donation goal will be donated to animal sanctuaries.
