The Official Mascot of the 2008 Beijing Paralympics was revealed on Wednesday. The mascot is a cow called Fu Niu Lele (福牛乐乐-Fú Niú Lèle), which means something like 'Lucky Cow Happyhappy'. The decision to use a cow as a mascot was made because of cows' never say die attitude, down to earth nature, and friendliness.
