<div class="quote-block">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.<br><br><br><br>
"We took one look at it and I can't repeat what I thought but I thought, 'Here we go again,'" said owner Dave Heider.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
Heider said he discovered the third white buffalo, a newborn male, after a storm in late August.<br></div>

1 in a million odds, 3 times, is pretty interesting.<br><br><br><br>
I wonder if they'll spare her from slaughter since she's become a symbol and tourist sight.<br><br><br><br>
I wonder how many buffalo they breed anually anyways. Is buffalo meat really that common?

there are a couple of places that sell it up near traverse city and i know there are a few places around here that selll buffallo burgers.<br><br><br><br>
the odds are increadible- i would bet that little buffallo is going to be spared, since he draws so many people to the area.
