What happened to Rufus?
May 22, 2014 3:18 PM Subscribe
Until recently, Rosemead, CA was home to one of the last great tiki restaurants, Bahooka
. Bahooka's star resident was Rufus, a 37-year old Pacu, who graced the entrance area. Rufus loved carrots
. He appeared in several movies, including Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
. Bahooka closed
in early 2013. Sadly, despite fan efforts to save and relocate
Rufus, his whereabouts are now a mystery, and as the site's new owners are not communicating, fears have grown that Rufus was simply thrown away.
