White bison continue to awe
The oldest known white bison walked on in October.

But when Lightning Medicine Cloud was born in Texas, it was cause for great celebration.

Celebrating its 103rd birthday this year, the National Bison Range also was a news topic as the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe battles for a management role at the range.
