Welcoming Our Newest Addition

Orphaned Buffalo Baby

Published on: May 10, 2024

Exciting news from our sanctuary!

We’re thrilled to introduce you to the newest member of our rescue family: Madeleine, a baby buffalo!

Though her start in life was tough, this little fellow is already stealing hearts. Found near her mother’s body, we’ve welcomed her with open arms, and she’s quickly adapted to life with us.

With round-the-clock care and lots of love, she’s settling in well, enjoying her bottle feedings and naps.

We’re grateful for the opportunity to provide her with a home and can’t wait to see the incredible journey that lies ahead.

Stay tuned for more adorable updates as our baby buffalo continues to thrive! 🐃

Buffalo calves typically stay with their mothers for about one to two years. During this time, they rely on their mothers for nourishment, protection, and guidance as they learn essential survival skills. As the calves grow, they gradually become more independent but may remain within the family herd for several years before eventually dispersing to find their own territory or join other herds. When their mothers are killed, they usually face certain death. Madeleine was lucky!


Did you Know?

Buffalo are surprisingly agile despite their size. They can run at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour (56 kilometers per hour), making them one of the fastest land animals in North America. So, if you ever find yourself in a buffalo’s territory, remember, they’re not just big—they’re also incredibly speedy!
