Rosie the Buffalo

Here is a short story with a very happy ending, thanks to the hard work of a lot of caring individuals.

In early August, a concerned resident contacted San Juan Animal League and described a very thin buffalo living in a field. The caller thought the buffalo might be starving. We contacted the New Mexico Livestock Board and San Juan County Sheriff's Department. Their quick investigation revealed that Rosie was severely malnourished, a victim of neglect and starvation. She was immediately removed from the abusive situation and charges against her abuser are pending. Rosie is at Animal Haven Clinic in Farmington, where she has become a darling of the staff. She will require special care for some time. A foster home in the Farmington area awaits her with lots of room to roam when her recovery is complete and until a permanent home is found. Rosie is eight-years-old. Her rescue and care have been expensive. If you would like to help provide support for Rosie, please contact Animal Haven Clinic at 1-866-325-8829 or San Juan Animal League at 505-325-3366.
