In the midst of catastrophic fires and destruction at the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, Canon City, Colo., which began Tuesday afternoon, by early Saturday morning, the gift of life was literally given as a white buffalo calf was born, and was christened "Smokey."  He's a pretty white bull calf, sired by the park's nine year old white buffalo bull, Chief Silver Bullet.  Pictured with Smokey is his mother Brownie,   All of the herd carry the white recessive gene, and 25% are born white.   

The park's wildlife park has a small herd of buffalo, elk, and bighorn sheep, all miracleously survived the fire that swept through the park and across the Royal Gorge.  They are all in very good shape, and are continued to be fed and watered until they can be safely moved.
