To actually see a picture of this animal makes the crime even more horrible.

Once again, an innocent animal's skin is probably hanging on some ignorant moron's wall. No doubt this was carried out 'to order' and some rich, fat-assed cretin is laughing their head off and admiring their so-called trophy. Well, let's hope the people responsible are soon caught and suitably punished. RIP, little one.

Wondering Why do this "Demon" or person does this kind of behavior by killing innocent infant albino bison name Lightning Medicine Cloud. Possible Sign of racial discrimination act against National Indian Cultural, Owner, or and some kind of Sicking Young Gang initiation in Hunt County Texas. Violence across the America and the world against animals, children and Women as well as men. Break or stop violence through love, education, etc instead playing violence in video games, etc.

Sad but not surprising. Anything special or sacred can't be left alone. Some ignorant jerks want to take if for themselves and then no one gets to enjoy it.

I wonder if they really killed it for the skin or if it was really because if its significance to the tribe.

We must all come to understand how much more we need to talk with family and friends about the sacredness of animals. Our future as humans depends on it. we need everyone to understand in their hearts the sadness of losing this sacred biuffalo

Everybody involved should be killed the same way and then skinned unless these pieces of crap skinned Lightning Medicine Cloud alive then they should be skinned alive!
