    I apologize if this is a d_b, but I searched and didn't find it. This is a story where the picture says it all. From the Daily Mail:

    They're an odd couple in every sense but a monkey and a pigeon have become inseparable at an animal sanctuary in China.

    The 12-week-old macaque - who was abandoned by his mother - was close to death when it was rescued on Neilingding Island, in Goangdong Province.

    After being taken to an animal hospital his health began to improve but he seemed spiritless - until he developed a friendship with a white pigeon.

    The blossoming relationship helped to revive the macaque who has developed a new lease of life, say staff at the sanctuary.

    Now the unlikely duo are never far from each other's side, but they aren't the only ones to strike up an unusual friendship.

    Earlier this year a pig adopted a tiger cub and raised him along with her piglets because his mother couldn't feed him.

    And in 2005 a baby dear named Mi-Lu befriended lurcher Geoffrey at the Knowsley Animal Park in Merseyside after she was rejected by her mother.

    From the thread title, I thought it was going to be about this: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070913/ap_on_fe_st/odd_cambodia_strange_love;_ylt=ArfZJYTx_mOR0HAUR0KDWAUsQE4F

    PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - A Cambodian man was arrested after injecting a woman with his own blood in a bizarre scheme to win her affections, police said Wednesday.

    The 22-year-old man is being held by police for allegedly causing injury to a 21-year-old woman, said Tan Sophal, a police officer in Battambang province where the attack occurred. It is about 155 miles northwest of the capital, Phnom Penh.

    The man allegedly injected a syringe of his blood into the woman's rib cage and waist as she walked home from school, Tan Sophal said.

    The assailant fell in love with the woman when the two were classmates in 2004, Tan Sophal said. After the woman refused his advances, he came up with the scheme to inject her with his blood, he said.

    "He thought that if he could not marry her, at least his blood can stay inside her body," Tan Sophal said. "That's why he injected her with his blood."

    Well, how about that.
    You learn something new every day, if you're lucky.
    Thanks, IJAG. I honestly had never heard of a lurcher before.
