Yunnan Zoo shows “sheep-deer love”

Yunnan Wild Animal Park’s “sheep falls in love with spotted deer [Sika Deer]” affair has attracted people’s attention and though a majority of people both believe and support the “love” of two animals, this affair has also been questioned and met with suspicion by many. November 26, zoo officials posted mating photos on their microblog to respond to these suspicions.

It’s all TM forced, why didn’t the zookeeper who squatted there for 4 days to take these photos not join it?

石门一只眼 [网易河北省石家庄市网友]:

Both creatures of the Earth, but why is it that photos of sheep [having sex] can be posted, but photos of humans are illegal?

Could this be the parents of the legendary grass mud horse?

黄易特邀评论员 [网易浙江省杭州市网友]:

The rear-mounting I’ve seen a lot when I was small and tended sheep.
Male sheep [ram] can definitely get very excited! Sometimes they would climb onto and hump even slightly larger rocks a few times!

LD all love to play this kind of game!


Everything is messed up… a harmonious society….


Resolutely oppose the dissemination of yellow photos [pornographic photos]! Why aren’t mosaics applied to this [why isn’t this censored]?

逃命要紧 [网易山东省青岛市网友]:

That sheep, has the air/manner of a government leader/official!

zwq2116 [网易江苏省徐州市网友]:

Even the zoo has become perverse/deviant!!!

fengrhuang [网易广东省深圳市网友]:

Sheep these days have become wolves!

What do you think? Do you support sheep-deer relationships?

  • See where an innocent language exchange can get you?

    “Baa Ram Ewe… how do you say that in Deerese? Say, you don’t mind if I order another frappacino, do you?”

  • And: Christ on a bicycle, will someone throw up a mosaic or something? I don’t need to see a bone sticking out of that sweater.

  • mr. weiner

    oh deer , that’s baaad.

  • GodsHammer

    Now that deer probably expects a cell-phone or a Gucci bag…

    • rollin wit 9’s

      Maybe so but i think the ram is already paying the deers rent. And i assume it s the deer’s friends or relatives in the background. So its only a matter of time before the deer’s parents starting asking when is she going to marry. I bet the ram is working hard now to buy a house or car or maybe both!

    Why must you repost the naked New Yorker pictures?

  • hooots

    That ram looks pretty horny.

    What a remarkably unimpressive story.

    What about the reaction to school buses being sold to Macedonia or the recent crash in Liaoning?

    Have the hits gone down far enough that this was deemed necessary to garner attention?

    (Shame on me for even clicking on this story…)

    • Fu ZhiGao

      Ouch. A bit harsh. Sorry for that comment.

    • Fu ZhiGao

      Ouch. A bit too harsh. Sorry for that. A bit of funny news isn’t the worst thing after all.

      • hooots

        This might be the greatest story chinaSMACK has ever dealt with. How priceless is that pic of a sheep fucking a deer? Answer: reasonably priceless. They even cuddle afterwards. I’m jealous.

  • Will I Am

    Ram it in Deer!

  • Will I Am

    FAUNA – Having the sheep and deer picture next to the naked people picture is almost too much to bear (or bare).

    Song of the article….

  • Interested

    That deer really loves sheep. All affections from the deer. The ram only did one thing.

  • andywattbulb

    Who are these people who have been questioning and meeting these two with suspicion? Huh?!

    • If the zoo supports the idea that these two animals are in love, then it isn’t a stretch to say that the zoo also supports the idea that animals have emotions.

      If animals have emotions, then just think what they go through in order to be our tasty meals. Of course, the zoo just supports more zoo admittance and not animal awareness.

  • mr. weiner

    You know this is going to lead to a number of “Why doe[s] prefer rams to bucks” stories.
    All the rams will be preening themselves and saying “bucks don’t know how to treat doe[s] right. they’re all mummy’s bucks and they have small penis’ too. The bucks of course will respond that “only slutty doe[s] would be seen with a ram anyway, it is a disgrace to deerdom, but at least she’s not going out with a horse” because we all know what horses are like right?

    • hooots

      I nominate this comment as the best comment in recent memory! Cheers mate!

      • mr. weiner

        aw shucks.
        I think that Fauna being the clever and subtle wee Shanghainese lass that she is, probably had an idea about the subtext of this story anyway so I think you give me too much credit [not that it’s unappreciated though!]

  • Foreign Devil

    The Toronto zoo in Canada separated two “gay lover” penguins. You can google it.

    • Gay Azn Boi

      Haha I know it’s so sad……they’re being separated for “mating purposes” cus they’re endangered. Like WTF that’s so cruel. I live in Toronto btw.

    • Patrick

      Yes but they caved to the gay activist pitching a fit. They only seperated them because those penguins are endangered.

  • give them 2 years…The deer will file for a divorce, it’s the trens in society… and the zoos

  • robin yates

    if they like doing it, why not?

    The comment of the deer’s relatives wanting the ram to buy a house and a car for the deer is hilarious! Cheers for that!!

  • Will I Am

    Fauna I know you giggled when you posted this.
