LONDON - Comedian Russell Brand and his singer wife Katy Perry have received a special wedding gift - a bullock.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India and Animal Rahat, have sent the duo a young bull as a congratulatory gift, following their wedding in India last month, reports contactmusic.com.
The bullock is named Russell.
“Russell the celebrity and Russell the bullock have something in common - they are both very handsome fellows. The gift of a namesake is also fitting because just as Russell Brand embarks on his new life as a married man, Russell the bullock has also been given a new lease on life - the heavy loads he once pulled have been lifted from his shoulders for good,” said Poorva Joshipura of PETA India.
The couple were married at the luxury Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan.
Brand even went ahead and bought a female Bengal tiger Machli for Perry. But they left her behind at the Ranthambore National Park and paid for her welfare.
