Sheep-Deer Couple in Yunnan Zoo Married on Valentine’s Day

An inter-species sheep and deer couple living in a Yunnan Zoo have finally tied the knot with a Valentine's Day wedding ceremony.

Less than three months after the strange relationship was gleefully reported around China, the Sheep-Deer love affair that has blossomed in a Yunnan zoo has at last been sanctified in a Valentine’s Day wedding ceremony.

The two animals first drew the attention of the internet back in November when pictures of the two cuddling and then copulating circulated throughout China’s social media.  The male sheep, “Long Hair,” and female deer, “Pure Child,”  were treated to a wedding bath and a banquet of carrots and grass with other park animals and guests.  Aside from a brief hiccup when Pure Child got nervous and momentarily left the “groom” at the altar, the two eventually made their way through an “I Do Gate” constructed by staff to affirm their “love.”

Despite the feel-good nature of the story, many netizens continue to dispute the veracity of the relationship as well as the appropriateness of an inter-species mock-marriage in a country that as of yet forbids non-traditional marriages.

    That male sheep is not bad. You know what they say about length of horns. Lucky deer.

    It was kinda cute at first in its novelty, when it could still be entertained that the zoo was sincere in asking whether the two animals should be allowed to remain together, but now they’re just milking it.

  • Bruce Tutty

    weird…why would anyone do this?

    • The Dude

      Do what? F*ck a dear? I have no idea.

  • Justin

    If this goat can get laid by a sexy deer, then there’s hope for some of you Chinasmack poindexters after all.

      Not really fair; this ram/deer forna-combination is still indicative of the “lao wai” advantage.

      • http://candosino.wordpress.com terroir

        The deer has a great pickup line: “Me love ewe long time.”

    The Kiwis will be jealous

      Lol, your from Perth mate…

      Australia….

      Where men are real men, and the sheep are nervous.

        funny that you don’t get sheep-shagging jokes in NZ, but you get them in Oz…I guess Merinos must be softer to cuddle up to.

        • Jess

          Well, that’s because having sex with sheep isn’t a joke in New Zealand…

            Ouch.

        A PhD in sheep shagging

        So, there is a guy in his final year at University, and he decides to do a thesis on Sheep Shagging. (Strange behaviour, considering he was studying Electronics … but, never mind … I digress).

        He calls upon a Surrey Sheep Farmer to ask his opinions.

        ‘Well, I gets the hind legs … stuffs them into me wellies … and then takes them from behind. That’s it.’

        ‘Oh, thank you’ says the student, taking copious notes along with sketches etc.

        Next he visits a farm down in Dorset.

        ‘What are your view on sheep shagging?’ he asks boldly.

        ‘Well, you’ve got to take the hind legs, stuff them into the wellingtons, and then take the sheep from behind. That’s all there is to it’

        ‘Oh. Thank you very much for your information’ the student replies, once again scribbling away in his notebook.

        The Student, intent on finding out the most about sheep shagging from farmers far and wide, visits Wales.

        ‘How do you sheep shag?’ he confronts one farmer.

        And once again he gets the same reply. ‘Take the hind legs. Stuff them into the wellingtons. Give the sheep one from behind.’

        Scottish farmers gave The Student the same answer. Maybe it was something to do with Great Britain or something … so he travels to Europe.

        All across Greece, Turkey, Italy, Austria, France … no matter where he went he got the same answer ‘Take the hind legs. Stuff them into the wellingtons. Take the sheep from behind.’

        The Student began to get depressed. No matter where he went, would he ever get a different answer? Surely there must be someone, somewhere, that shagged sheep differently.

        He travelled to the Southern Hemisphere.

        At New Zealand he obtained the same answer to the same question.

        ‘Take the hind legs. Stuff them into the wellingtons. Take the sheep from behind.’

        Finally he manages to find a small outback farm in the middle of Australia. He approaches the sheep farmer and explains his predicament. Gladly the Australian sheep farmer explains his method.

        ‘Well, you get the sheep; throw it on its back; spread its legs and then do the business.’

        ‘Eh? … ‘ replied The Student, incredulously. ‘You don’t put the legs in the wellingtons and take the sheep from behind?’

        ‘WHAT!?’, says the Aussie Farmer … ‘And miss out on all the *kissing* ?’

          Well done. However, I do feel its a tad unfair to dump all these ram-rooting jokes solely onto males. I have recently heard a story coming out of Oz that authorities have forbidden butchers from hanging sheep by their hind legs outside of the shop… i’ll leave the rest for you to figure out.

        • Hongjian (aka Guangjoe)

          I admit, I have shagged plenty of sheep in my days. We chinese love hairy pussy

            Oh deer.

      • mr. wiener

        Perth is mainly full of “sud aaffrikaans” these days. I heard they’re thinking of changing it’s name to “Perthtoria” ;)

  • jiayi

    Fauna can we get more translated comments please? That’s my favorite bit.

  • 平凡人

    Marriage? This is really crap. Another one of those cash generating scheme to hit on dumb asses.

  • Irvin

    Males are only as loyal as their options just put a couple of sheeps in and see what happens.

    • http://candosino.wordpress.com terroir

      Well, there’s a difference. You would spend all your savings upon buying a house for your sheep, but then again you’d get laid more often.

  • jeffli

    new zealanders revenge! haha!

    My Godfather! too many drugs in YunNan!
    what the outcome?
    a “shear” or a “deep”

    thousands of years of “culture” and “history” and we can say Chinese romanticism = animals fking.

    I’m gonna ditch my Chinese GF and start fkng emei mountain monkeys (more intelligent and less hairy “down there”.

    now wheres my peanuts….my GF took them all LOL

  • hooots

    Come on guys. It’s a sheep fucking a deer and they got married. Hilarious. I support them.

  • bert

    This is stupid. They are animals. They don’t even know what they are doing. What’s worse are the human’s that SHOULD know what they are doing. Ridiculous!

  • SylvianDark

    This is what interracial couples look like to me.

  • donscarletti

    Does anyone else suspect that this ram will just mate with any female deer it can find but they fake the love story for tourists?

    Maybe all rams do that, male dogs at least tend to mate first, check species later, I saw one trying to mount a chicken once.

    Also, General RAAM from Gears of War is awesome, though he directs his energy away from inter-species fornication and towards violence. I’d bet he’d still be proud of his namesake though.
