Russell Brand's Bullock Gift

Russell Brand and Katy Perry were given a bullock as a wedding present.

The 'Get Him To The Greek' actor - who is a devout vegetarian - tied the knot with the 'California Gurls' singer last month in India and now two animal rights groups in the country, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India and Animal Rahat, have sent them a young bull as a congratulatory gift.

Poorva Joshipura at PETA India said: "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."

He also added they had yet to get Russell and Katy's response about the present.

As well as getting a bull, Russell bought Katy a tiger as a wedding gift.

The couple were married at the luxury Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan, India and Russell reportedly surprised his new wife by splashing out thousands of pounds on Machli, a female Bengal tiger who lives in the Ranthambore National Park near where they tied the knot.

However Russell - who chose the big cat because she is known as the "epitome of beauty" by park rangers and reminds him of his new bride - plans to leave the tiger in India and will pay for her welfare on Katy's behalf.
