Dear Sir,

I came accross the wonderful paper titiled "Sacred Cows and Sympathetic Squirrels: The Importance of Biological Diversity to Human Health" but was surprised to note that the Figure 1 tiltled "Cow and Proud Owner in Dacca, Bangladesh" is actually of an OX. May I request you to reconsider the image/title. I may be a little tangential in this aspect, but I wish the smallest details of your esteemed journal to be correct.

Thanking you in advance.

Sincerely,

kangkan halder
