3d White Buffalo Calf born on same farm 3 Chuen 4 Chen

Funny that in this time of global warming and global extinction, a sign of world peace is born. Maybe it's not too late after all.

A farm in Wisconsin is quickly becoming hallowed ground for American Indians with the birth of its third white buffalo, an animal considered sacred by many tribes for its potential to bring good fortune and peace. .... Thousands of people stopped by Heider's Janesville farm after the birth of the first white buffalo, a female named Miracle who died in 2004 at the age of 10. The second was born in 1996 but died after three days. Heider said he discovered the third white buffalo, a newborn male, after a storm in late August. That this latest birth is a male doesn't make it any less significant in American Indian prophecies, which say that such an animal will reunite all the races of man and restore balance to the world, (Floyd "Looks for Buffalo" Hand, a medicine man in the Oglala Sioux Tribe)said. He said the buffalo's coat will change from white to black, red and yellow, the colors of the various races of man, before turning brown again. The birth of a white male buffalo means men need to take responsibility for their families and the future of the tribe, Hand said. ....The odds of a white buffalo are at least 1 in a million.
