Benda to Move White Buffalo to Sanctuary
Last week, Highland Park resident John Benda — owner of Fuel City on Riverfront Boulvard — added a pregnant white buffalo named Lone Star to his pasture of longhorn cattle and donkeys that straddles the Trinity River.
According to news reports, Benda’s listened to pleas from animal-rights activists and American Indians — some who consider white buffalo sacred — and, consequently, he plans to relocate Lone Star from his gas station to a sanctuary. Critics accuse Benda of using the buffalo as a promotional gimmick; but others believe Benda was simply making one of nature’s wonders accessible to the public (though, arguably, too close to Fuel City’s taco stand for comfort).
