Deemed a belated wedding present, the bullock who is also named Russell, has just been rescued from being a worker.
Newly-married Russell Brand has received an unusual wedding gift from officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in India - a bullock named after him. The long-time animal rights defender, who was named PETA's sexiest vegetarian in 2007, exchanged vows with singer Katy Perry in the country last weekend, and the organization has given the comic a belated present.
Poorva Joshipura from PETA India says, "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."
