PLYMOUTH, Connecticut — Police have released new beefalo videos on their Facebook page Tuesday. 

"Buddy" as he has been affectionately named by Plymouth Police, has been on the run since August when he escaped a nearby animal processing facility. 

The beefalo has since gone viral here in Connecticut, a gofundme page was created by police, and Buddy now has an unofficial twitter page

The videos posted Tuesday show Buddy within the last few days getting closer to a trap set up by police in their attempt to capture him. The plan is to build a fence around the area to capture him more easily. 

Buddy has made a few appearances over the last few days! (see last post for other video)
