|Suspicious: Police are investigating the mysterious death of |
a rare white buffalo at a north Texas ranch
The White Buffalo, a Symbol of Hope?
my UK friend King UKe alerted me to this other white buffalo story -
"A rare white buffalo calf that became the centre of a Native American cult has died mysteriously just days before its first birthday.
Authorities are investigating the suspicious death of the buffalo, named Lightning Medicine Cloud, on Lakota Ranch, north Texas.
Ranch owner Arby Little Soldier says he found the animal dead on Monday. The buffalo's mother was found dead the following day, he said.
Last year, thousands attended a naming ceremony to celebrate the calf's May 12 birth. The ceremony, held at the ranch, included gourd dancing, traditional drum ceremonies and Native American arts and craft vendors.
According to Lakota Sioux lore, the goddess of peace once appeared in the form of a white buffalo calf.
Arby Little Soldier says the buffalo 'was the hope of all nations'." "They wanted to know why I did what I did
Well sir I guess there's just a meanness in this world"
Let's hope that this gutless act doesn't mean that Lightning Medicine Cloud's murder doesn't warn of a storm brewing on the horizon..
