- One of Rick Ross’s neighbors told TMZ that his buffalo kept trespassing on his yard.
- She told the publication that she feared for the safety of her children.
- Ross addressed their escape in an Instagram Story, thanking his neighbors for turning them back.
Rick Ross’ buffalo has been running off his Promise Land property and into a neighbor’s yard, much to his chagrin, according to to a TMZ report.
Rapper and rancher Ross, who lives in Fayetteville, Georgia, has several animals on the property, including horses, cows, and a pair of buffaloes, one of which is named Timbuktu. the buffaloes were given to Ross last year for her birthday by the Ethika clothing company while expanding her ranch.
The unidentified woman, who lives on land behind the rapper’s property, told TMZ that the 2,000-pound animals crossed her yard twice this week, making her fear for the safety of her two young children.
She too shared a video of animals tearing up your yard and chewing on your grass. In the video, a group of people can be seen removing the buffalo pair, along with a cow, from their property.
The woman said the incident resulted in her trying to confront Ross, but she only ended up speaking to a member of his team. She told TMZ that she plans to file a neighborhood dispute with the city.
In response to headlines about his animals escaping his ranch, Ross took her instagram story on Sunday afternoon to make a statement and allay fears about his massive animals.
“They’re just herbivores, they’re not carnivores,” Ross said in a story.
Ross explained that the animals escaped due to work he was doing on his property and confirmed that his team members were the group that rounded up the escaped animals.
He also asked those who heard his statement online to “always wear a collar” on their animals, although he contradicted himself by saying that he did not collar his buffaloes.
“And to everyone who wants a statement and answer for my bulls, my cows, a couple of buffalo that ran away in the community, here’s my answer: I always return strays. Make sure you always keep a collar on your animal. And mine doesn’t have a necklace because you know it’s mine.”
Ross continued, “So when you see my buffalo, give it a carrot, give it an apple. They’re so nice. They’re so peaceful. Thank you all for watching. Thank you all for making sure my animals got back to the Promised Land.”
In January, Ross took to his Instagram Story to share a conspiracy theory about Tesla, saying he feared the semi-autonomous vehicle could be remote controlled to take it to authorities against their will.
Representatives for Ross did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
