Unicorn born in Italy?

Unicorn born in Italy?

A Roe deer has been born in Tuscany, Italy with one horn in the middle of its head. Okay, it’s perhaps not a real unicorn but it’s about as near to you can get without ingesting any controlled substances. The 10 month old deer was born in captivity at the Centre of Natural Sciences, a nature reserve near Prato.

Gilberto Tozzi who is the director of the Centre of Natural Sciences has said

“This is a demonstration that the fabled unicorn, which we all know from icons and legends, probably was not just a fantasy. It was probably an animal like this one, with a natural anomaly,”

Wikipedia says that unicorns traditionally had a billy-goat beard, a lion’s tail, and cloven hooves. This one however is slightly less mythical looking.

Apparently, according to Leonardo Da Vinci the best way to catch a unicorn is to use a virgin as bait.

“For the love it bears to fair maidens forgets its ferocity and wildness and laying aside all fear it will go to a seated damsel and sleep in her lap, and thus the hunters take it,”

I have a great plan. All I need are some virgins volunteers…

  1. Again the Atheist can no longer use the unicorn argument, even thought the biblical unicorn was the rhinoceros
