      A Rare Friendship Between a Leopard and a Cow

      GUJARAT, INDIA, May 12, 2003: A rare phenomena
      has captured the hearts and minds of inhabitants
      of a village in Gujarat. It all started last
      October when a leopard began making regular
      nocturnal visits to a cow in the village.
      At first the villagers were leery of the visits,
      but word soon spread about the unusual relationship.
      Rohit Vyas explained, "It was unbelievable. They
      approached each other at very close proximity
      and the fearless cow would lick the leopard
      on its head and neck." Efforts by the Forest
      department to capture the leopard proved fruitless.
      Soon the villagers were protecting the leopard.
      Apparently its frequent visits have kept other
      animals from damaging crops and crop yields
      have gone up by 30 per cent.
