Hunt County investigators: White buffalo calf died naturally
The Associated Press

The white buffalo calf Lightning Medicine Cloud was found dead in April on Arby Little Soldier’s Greenville ranch, with only its head and tail left behind. Sheriff Randy Meeks said he hoped to present a case to a grand jury Aug. 24

The Hunt County Sheriff’s Department has announced that a white buffalo calf treasured by the Lakota Sioux died of natural causes, despite reports that it had been killed and skinned in early May.

A three month investigation into Lightning Medicine Cloud’s death at Lakota Ranch proved that the calf had not been skinned. It exhibited symptoms of a bacterial disease, according to the Hunt County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities were contacted on May 3 after the calf’s mother, Buffalo Woman, died. At that point investigators believe Lightning Medicine Cloud had been dead for six days.

Two additional buffalo at Lakota Ranch died shortly after the calf and its mother.

    I'm too lazy to do the research for you, but google 'flesh-eating bacteria' and you will get some interesting results. 

    Trust me, they exist.

    It's probably just staph or streptococcus (sp?).

    I never saw photo's or anything of what it looked like but I did work on a mink farm when I was younger. When I worked there I saw allot of mink killed either by other mink or die of disease etc. What this made me think of is the amount of times I saw mink kits(young mink) turned virtually inside out by their litter mates. Often all you would find is the head, and a strap of skin that they ate the insides out of including the tail. So it's a bit gruesome to think about but I'll tell ya the first time I saw that I didn't think it was other critter's doing it;) It looked like something done with a knife or something. So perhaps it was some sort of natural thing like that since they believed it was skinned.

    Take care!

    If it was just the head and tail left, it sounds very much like coyotes.

    They can be funny about what they eat and what they leave. I've found the remains of a number of house cats that were eaten by them - usually all that's left is a set of four paws.

    Ah, I forgot about that - I just remembered they thought it had been skinned.  :facepalm

    It doesn't surprise me that a coyote might leave the head and tail - my cat would do the same thing to rats. Still, you'd think there would be toothmarks and other signs they could use to tell...

      Maybe it was the Greys doing a diabolical experiment. Did anybody check to see if it's anus had been cut out? I hear the Greys like photon grilled anus on sourdough w/ swiss, mustard and a good crunchy Kosher dill.

    Don't be silly. The Greys are in Stevenville NOT Greenville.

    On January 8, 2008, Stephenville gained national media attention when dozens and later hundreds of residents reported observations of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). According to reports, residents observed several types of UFOs, the descriptions ranging from triangular looking craft to discs. Several residents described the crafts as the size of a football field, while others said they were nearly a mile long, similar to the historic Arizona mass sighting of March 13, 1997.[5] Some observers reported military aircraft pursuing the objects.[6]

    Ah, I stand corrected. In that case I'd look for reports of missing anuses in the Stephenville area, that and mustard thefts......

    I went to Tarleton State University in Stevenville. Bunch of Amish folk there. Don't know for sure butt I don't think they have anuses. Also it's a dry county; NO BEER! I'm not sure about the mustard situation. I mostly lived on handmade tamales, chorizo and tortillas.
