There's a $1,000 price on the buffalo head stolen from the Buffalo Grille restaurant.

Owner Mac McAleer said his restaurant was hit by a burglar who took several items Sunday and he's especially anxious to get back the shaggy stuffed head of Billy Buffalo."It's important to us," he said. "They left so much that would have been easy to take." McAleer said. "Certainly easier than a buffalo head - a big buffalo head at that."

"We just want our buffalo back," said McAleer's wife, Betty, co-owner of the restaurant. "So many children are coming in and saying, `Where's the buffalo?' He was a real friend."
