JAMESTOWN, N.D. — A rare albino buffalo that drew a long line of visitors to Jamestown has been preserved following her death and shipped back to the National Buffalo Museum where she had lived for nearly two decades.

The museum estimated three million people saw the buffalo, White Cloud, at the museum while she was alive.

KFGO (http://bit.ly/2qrPrLN ) reports White Cloud spent her last days on a ranch near Michigan last November. After $50,000 was raised for taxidermy services she was returned to the museum in Jamestown Tuesday with a police escort.
