Tortoise beats rabbit in China pet ski-off
Cats and dogs faced off against a menagerie including a rooster and a yellow duck in a race to the finish line on snowy slopes in China's Hebei province, the state-run China News Service said.
The 40 human competitors were allowed to place their animals on skis or sledges, or could guide the pet with a lead while skiing, the report said.
In an unexpected outcome akin to an ancient Greek fable, a tortoise beat a rabbit, with the shelled reptile eventually claiming third place overall, the report said.
"Because the rabbit loved jumping and didn't follow its owner's commands, it was overtaken by the tortoise," it said.
The tortoise - which would normally be expected to hibernate during the winter - apparently hitched a ride on its owner's ski equipment, the report added.
