    'Wedding' for ram and deer at China zoo! (Forbidden Love)


    Pictured: Changmao the ram and Chunzi the doe are the main Valentine's draw at the zoo

    A ram and a deer are set to be "married" at a zoo in south-western China on Valentine's Day, state-run media report.

    Changmao the ram and Chunzi the doe's "unconventional relationship" have made them popular with the public. The Yunnan Provincial Wildlife Park in Kunming city will be issuing tickets to the event. The pair were forcibly separated last year but were eventually reunited.

    At least 500 tickets at 66 yuan ($10; £6.60) will be issued for their "wedding day", China Daily reports. The animals will be clad in "wedding clothes". But Changmao has not been exactly faithful to Chunzi. He fathered a baby lamb with the zoo's only female sheep. That was why zoo officials decided to separate the ram and the doe in November last year.

    However, when zookeepers put Changmao with his lamb and its mother, he became violent. Chunzi, for her part, squeezed through the fence to be near him. The ram and doe had been raised together in one group at the park. "We put them together because they were all herbivores," Liu Gencheng, a park official, was quoted by Xinhua as saying.

    Zookeepers had noticed that the pair were affectionate towards each other, with Chunzi often licking Changmao's hair, and Changmao attacking male deer that dared approach the doe. The pair became famous after a local TV station aired a report about them. In Chinese, Changmao means long hair and Chunzi means pure. Scientists are advising the public not to put too much human meaning into the pair's behaviour, saying that "leaving them alone is the best choice".

    That's so cute

    Except when the ram cheated on the doe. I mean he was like, you know, together with her and he got a lover for a one night stand with which he made a baby. Then the mistress tried to blackmail him to give her money since she knew he was a rich ram, no wonder he became violent! But all's well in the end for the doe forgave him, he is still left with paying child's care but the evil sheep got nothing.

    Honestly though, it's not uncommon for animals that would primarily not be predators to show affection towards each other. It's less common between different species, but it's certainly does exist. Regardless, DAWWWWWWWW!
