White Cloud returns to National Buffalo Museum
White Cloud the albino bison was brought back to the National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown on Tuesday, May 9.
White Cloud died Nov. 14 at the Shirek Buffalo Ranch near Michigan, N.D. White Cloud was 19 and had spent most of her life with the herd at the National Buffalo Museum.
Monte Hoggarth, a Jamestown taxidermist, completed the $50,000 White Cloud preservation project. Dave and JoAnn Vining donated $30,000 toward the project.
National Buffalo Museum's board members and community were on hand to celebrate. The event started with a procession of white vehicles through downtown as Jamestown Police Department escorted the truck and trailer carrying the world’s most famous bison back to her home to be a permanent exhibit.
