Rare white buffalo born - a one in ten million chance

A rare white buffalo was born on a bison farm in Goshen, CT. Since it's birth last month, it has been the center of media attention, on the Today show and CNN. The chances of a naturally occurring white bison are one in ten million, and the Native Americans consider it sacred. Elders from the Lakota tribe in South Dakota will be coming to the farm for a naming ceremony. The last white bison born in Texas was killed and slaughtered last year in what is believed to be a hate crime against Native Americans. Meanwhile, an effort in underway in Congress to nomination the bison as the official animal of the United States. Pictured: Rare White Buffalo
