Who says that genetic manipulation is all about the creation of horrific mutants and such? Why, what can be used for evil can also be used for cuteness. Behold, the miniature Panda Cow:
The miniature panda cow is the result of 44 years of genetic manipulation by Richard Gradwohl, a farmer in Covington, Wash., about 20 miles southeast of Seattle.
A white belt encircling the animal’s midsection, and the white face with black ovals around the eyes, give the cow an appearance that is very much panda-like.
And if you wonder why people breed mini cows, the answer is that they're used as pets.
