DURHAM: Bubba the Ram to be auctioned Jan. 31 in Rougemont

Bubba the Ram to be auctioned Jan. 31 in Rougemont

Posted: Updated:
DURHAM, N.C. -

Bubba the Ram, who ran free in the Triangle before being captured Dec. 10, will be auctioned Jan. 31, the Durham Sheriff's Office said Friday.

The Durham County Office of the County Attorney sent out an official notice Tuesday afternoon that Bubba would be auctioned off Jan. 27.

But that date was pushed back and set for Jan. 31 at 10 a.m.

The sale will be at the Elodie Farms at 9522 Hampton Road in Rougemont.

The animal, which what some say is a rare breed of sheep called Barbados Mouflon, had amused workers in the Triangle and residents around Durham after random spottings began in August.

The Sheriff's Office said Bubba will be sold "as is," and the buyer is responsible for transportation of the animal.
