Gaurs (Indian bisons) are the largest of all wild cattle. They pose a threat to other animals, owing to their dangerous horns: they can kill by goring and trampling to death. Their numbers, as with other wild animals in India, are decreasing.
Cattle are sacred to Hindus, and some states of India ban their slaughter. They symbolize wealth, strength, abundance, selfless giving, and the full earthly life. They are valued especially for the milk and the dung they provide.
This photo was taken in the Mysore zoo, and tomorrow's upload will complete a specific duo of shots (making my point, so to speak).
