    This is a nilgai. From the Wiki entry:

    The nilgai (Boselaphus tragocamelus), sometimes called nilgau, is the largest Asian antelope. It is one of the most commonly seen wild animals of central and northern India, often seen in farmland or scrub forest. The mature male appears ox-like and is also known as the blue bull. A blue bull is called a nil gai or nilgai in India, from nil meaning blue and gai meaning a bovine animal (literally ‘cow’). It is also present in parts of southern Nepal and eastern Pakistan. The species has become extinct in Bangladesh.

  2. I had no idea what species the animal was/is but I do know that it’s such a shame that humans let our animals go extinct. Even if just in parts of our world. Humans are our animals worst enemies. I watch alot of NatGeo and see what happens to the poor elephants that are driven out of their habitat and the kids that terrorize them with rocks and sticks and then they get murdered for taking care of themselves? How WRONG this is!! They deserve everything they get. If they would just let the poor animals alone and leave their habitat alone and TRY to learn how to farm instead of strip the animals of their habitat they wouldn’t come into the villages of these idiots and kill them. They are only trying to survive. I get very angry every time I see a poor elephant slaughtered for it’s ivory or a rhino slaughtered for it’s horn.. for useless old wivestales that the powder in the dried horn increases humans power to reproduce. Hell, we need to STOP reproducing!! Humans are the worst when it comes to reproducing We do it way too much and then what happens, The ones of us that have no children or don’t care to have children have to pay for them and the poor animals get murdered because they have no place to raise their few young they do get to keep away from this horrible thing we call a human race. I think if it’s ever possible to come back as something, I would much rather come back as a dog or ANY animal other than a human. Most humans are greedy, careless, heartless and stupid! If anything needs to be controlled, it’s HUMANS! Just my humble opinion.. Katherine……….
