Rare White Buffalo Born In Pennsylvannia

A rare white male buffalo calf was born November 12 at the Woodland Zoo in Farmington, Pennsylvannia. Sonny Herring, owner of the zoo found the calf when he went out to feed two female buffaloes. At first, he thought a goat from the petting zoo had gotten into the pen. As he got closer, he realized that the calf was indeed a buffalo. "Buffalo usually breed in the fall and give birth in the spring," said Mr. Herring, who has no explanation as to why this calf was born in November. Native Americans put special significance to the arrival of a white buffalo. They have even depicted the white buffalo as a subject in their Native American artwork. This artwork in turn as been put on coins - see Native American art on Coins. See Free Spirit Gallery for wonderful Native American Art.
