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 (23Oct10), and the organisation 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."
