The Hot Springs Police Department has issued another update on the ongoing efforts to contain approximately six buffalo that escaped this morning from a local farm located near Shady Grove Road:
At this time, there are only two unsecured buffalo that remain in the wooded area near the Malvern Avenue/Bellaire Drive area. Representatives from the Little Rock Zoo are lending assistance at the scene. City crews have been called in to transport the secured buffalo from the wooded area back to Shady Grove Farm. Mr. Tony Bettis, the owner of the buffalo, is also on the scene. The public’s continued vigilance is requested until all the animals are secured.
