An 800- to 900-pound beefalo remains on the loose in Plymouth, Conn., weeks after it escaped while being loaded off a truck for slaughter, per the AP. The beefalo—a cross between a bison and domestic cattle—escaped from a meat-processing business on Aug. 3, the Hartford Courant reported. Authorities attempted to confront an animal believed to be the beefalo Wednesday near Route 72 but retreated when the animal showed signs he would charge the officers.
In an initial release, police identified the animal as a steer, but they later clarified that it was a beefalo. Katie Adkins, owner of Plymouth Meats—from where the beefalo escaped—described the animal as "a little wilder than normal cattle. ... I mean, it's half buffalo." The animal is believed to be in thick woods and is considered dangerous.
