Ferdinand relaxing next to a tree today, and I thought to myself, 'He sure looks lonely,'" writes submitter Maegina of The Byrd House on Ghostlands (US-H). "I just happened to have packed a nice picnic basket, so I asked him if he would like to share my lunch. We started talking and after a few minutes poor Ferdinand started telling me his life story. It was heart-wrenching. He likes to come down to the orchard to enjoy the wildlife and to meditate in this peaceful and beautiful setting. He said that it helps him to get back in touch with his roots."
"Well, to make a long story short, it never fails that as soon as he starts to become one with the universe, someone comes along and picks a fight to the death. More times than not, it's poor Ferdinand that ends up dead. It's not Ferdinand's fault. He's just happens to be one of those rare citizens of Pandaria that everyone feels the 'glorious' need to kill."
"So the next time you wander by the The Arboretum and you see Ferdinand sitting under that tree, please be kind enough to sit and chat a little or even share your lunch with him before you kill him. It's no bull: everyone needs a friend."
