    Sacred White Buffalo murdered

    Reward for Slaughter of Sacred White Buffalo Upped to $45,000

    A year ago, a rare white buffalo later named Lightning Medicine Cloud was born near Greenville, Texas, on the Lakota Ranch. Last week, the animal was found killed and skinned; a day later its mother was also found dead.

    Just pure evil at work, makes me sick. We had a thread on this when it was born but I can't find it.
    Some people try to turn back their odometers.
    Not me! I want people to know why I look this way.
    I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

    What jerks.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    This is heartbreaking. Some ranchers won't even announce when White Buffalo Calves are born for this very reason.

    Pte san win, White Buffalo Calf Woman, is an integral part of Lakota life, every calf born is sacred...

    So senselessly cruel. Absolutely sickening.

    Yes, sometimes I just have to take a break and not read of tortured, missing, and killed children because it just gets to be too much. Then I hear this. My daughter lives in TX and just told me about this. I just hope their trophy (the hide) is seen and someone gets to collect the $45,000 by turning them in.

    On May 12, 2011, a white male buffalo calf named Wakinya Pejuta Mahpiya which means Lightning Medicine Cloud in Lakota was born near Greenville, Texas during a thunderstorm on the ranch of Arby Little Soldier.[10] In May 2012, less than year after it's birth, Lightning Medicine Cloud was found on the Lakota Ranch, butchered and skinned by an unknown individual. It's mother was found dead the next day.


    Buffalos are normally brown in color; white buffalo can result from one of several physical conditions:
    They may be leucistic, with white fur but blue eyes, instead of the pink seen in albinos.
    They may have a rare genetic condition which causes a buffalo to be born white, but to become brown within a year or two as it matures.
    They may be albinos, in which case they will remain unpigmented throughout their lives, and may also have hearing and vision problems.
    They may be beefalo, a bison–cattle crossbreed, and thus have inherited the white coloration from their cattle ancestry.

    Last summer he was already changing to a rust color and no longer white. This was not done for a white hide, it is just pure evil.

    I was reading that, too, Jacie, that he had to be targeted...at this point he was just a lovely light brown, so someone had to know who and what he was, and his importance. I had tears looking at the beautiful pics of him, and of the naming ceremony. I wonder if this could be classified as a hate crime, in addition to any animal cruelty charges etc.? After all, if someone desecrates items in a church or synagogue or mosque, I would think those are hate crimes, aren't they? I see no difference here with this poor little guy.

    Gawd the world sucks sometimes. Way to go, guys, you killed a sacred being! All I can picture is some nihilistic young guys doing this because they themselves are just empty of anything meaningful or spiritual. Ughhh.

    The first male born in 150 years and someone thought they had the right to do something this horrendous! This person should go to prison for a long time. It is unspeakable!

    Killed the mother so she would never have another albino calf. This is a sick person! I hope they catch the person(s) and turn them over to the Lakotas for tribal justice! Such a cruel and senseless act!

    IF the jerks who killed this calf are caught, I would like to see AIRFA, American Indian Religious Freedom Act, used against them. It is a federal law that protects expression, These rights include, but are not limited to, access of sacred sites, freedom to worship through ceremonial and traditional rights and use and possession of objects considered sacred. It is a stretch but I think a judge might see it that way. In Oceti Sakowin, [Sioux/Lakota] culture, this is a huge act of desecration or intolerance, as well as to all people. I would not want to be the people who did this, they brought some serious bad medicine on themselves.

    If AIRFA [see previous post] can be used, it is a federal crime.

    This saddens me tremendously! I can't help but think this was someone who knew exactly what this animal meant to the Lakotas. Now they have their trophy! Does this fall under a hate crime?

    It not only meant a lot to the Lakotas. It meant a lot to all of us who will never have the chance to see another one.

    I'm against anyone doing this to any animal!

    This crime would not come under tribal law because of location and jurisdictional law.
