|From the AP: A rare white buffalo runs into a corral after a Native American naming ceremony was held in Greenville, Texas Wednesday, June 29, 2011.|
"American Indian leaders around the nation are contemplating the birth of a white buffalo calf. The male, born on May 12th during a thunderstorm, is said to be only the third on record to be born without any active breeding efforts. The last verified white buffalo, named "Miracle," was born in 1994 and gave birth to four calves before dying in 2004.
Several American Indian cultures believe this type of bison portends future events, and therefore, tribal leaders will soon descend upon Little Soldier's ranch to determine what the calf's purpose and message is. The prophecy could be exceptionally important, given the fact that the calf was born during a thunderstorm.
Because this is, according to several tribes, the third white buffalo born, it means the next one born will portend the end times. So, at least the world is not going to end any time soon. Harold Camping, take note. Nothing is happening, at least not until that fourth one is born."
