Thank you for your reply! 
I'm using OS X 10.10.2
Snort was installed from Homebrew (so I believe that means from package)
I've downloaded it from that link (https://www.snort.org/configurations) and now I'm getting this:

The permissions on "/var/log/barnyard2" are 755 (drwxr-xr-x   2 root   wheel   68B   barnyard2/).
So I've done this with sudo:

So there are no waldo file for some reason((( Any ideas?

# The above consecutive messages indicate that Barnyard2 is working on reading existing logs generated by Snort. As you can see, logs seem to be empty. As for the waldo file, Barnyard2 will create it for you, the message at the top is just a warning.
