A goat and a deer are getting married at a Chinese zoo

 

Apparently, true love really does know no boundaries, as a ram named Changmao and a doe named Chunzi at China’s Yunnan Provincial Wildlife Park are going to celebrate this Valentine’s Day with their very own inter-species wedding.

While their “marriage” is obviously just a publicity stunt, there reportedly does appear to be some real affection between the two animals. Chunzi licks the hair of the ram like she would a normal deer mate, and Changmao attacks any male deer that attempts to approach his chosen doe. The unusual bond can probably be explained by their unusual upbringing – born around the same time, the two animals were placed in the same pen because, as park official Liu Gencheng explained, “they were all herbivores.”
