PETA names bullock after Russell BrandNovember 1st, 2010 - 5:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 01 (ANI): Comic Russell Brand who had a big fat Indian jungle wedding with Katy Perry 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 organisation has given the comic a belated present.
“Russell the celebrity and Russell the bullock have something in common: they are both very handsome fellows,” the Daily Star quoted Poorva Joshipura from PETA India as saying.
“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,” Joshipura added. (ANI)
