GREENVILLE – Hundreds gathered Wednesday morning near Greenville to celebrate the birth of a rare white buffalo, now known as Lightning Medicine Cloud.
The calf was born to the herd of Arby Little Soldier, who says he chose the name because the animal was born during a thunderstorm on May 12 and as a tribute to the first known white buffalo in Texas born in 1933.
The birth of a white buffalo is an estimated one in 10 million occurrence.
