Buddy the Beefalo has been the talk of Plymouth since August and he is still on the loose.
Buddy, a name police chose for the animal, is a beefalo, which is a cattle-bison hybrid that is raised for its meat. Buddy had been brought from a farm in Becket, Massachusetts, and escaped a meat processing facility in Plymouth, Connecticut in August.
Police warned he could be highly aggressive. To capture him, searchers have left grain near a trailer and they have also set up a rope system to close the gate to contain the animal.
However, Buddy has eluded police efforts to contain him, becoming a local celebrity in the process.
Once captured, Buddy will be sent to the Critter Creek Farm Sanctuary in Gainesville, Florida.
