Lightning Medicine Cloud: Sacred White Buffalo Murdered

All white buffalos are important and some white buffalos are sacred,  this site has a nice report about a white buffalo born  in June 2011.

Awhite buffalo was named Lightning Medicine Cloud was born on a stormy night in May, 2011 complete with thunder and lightning.  he was born on the Lakota Buffalo Ranch in Texas.

A true white buffalo, not an albino buffalo which is a different animal, is a one-in-ten-million occurrence.  Very very rare.  True white buffalos must have a black nose, black lips and a black tip on their tail.  Albino buffalos do not have these markings.

Lightning Medicine Cloud even has his own web site.  Cool huh….

Lightning Medicine Cloud, not yet one year old, was found dead and skinned on his Texas ranch about one week ago.

A very large birthday party had been planned for the sacred buffalo who was seen as an important symbol for people of all races.

Little Soldier said the calf’s mother, which was found dead and skinned the next day, was poisoned. The calf’s father was struck and killed by lightning in April.”
