GREENVILLE, Texas. -- A rare white buffalo considered sacred among members of the Native American community was found killed and skinned in Texas.
The non-albino white buffalo, named Lightning Medicine Cloud in a special ceremony last summer, was discovered Thursday by Lakota Buffalo Ranch owner Arby Little Soldier near Greenville, 50 miles (80km) northwest of Dallas.

Little Soldier said, "My people -- my brothers, my sisters -- are hurt for what has happened here at this ranch. You don't think things like this are going to happen to such a sacred animal, a sacred family."

The following day, the white buffalo's mother was also found dead on the ranch and the animal's father was killed by a lightning strike last month.

Little Soldier said the animal was a symbol of hope and he would bury all three animals together along a tree line.

He said, "He was the hope of all nations. You have taken the inner spirituality. You tried to stop what we're bringing back to ya'll, but you just opened the doors to release the message to all people."
