.After he's been brought up to speed medically, Buddy will then be on his way down to Florida (You say?) He's headed to Critter Creek Farm Sanctuary in Gainesville, Florida, where he will hopefully spend the rest of his years thinking about that cool Connecticut fall and winter when he was able to roam free and give no F's about the chumps chasing him with the rope and tranquilizer gun.
