This is one of our Secretive creature, found in Vietnam, the saola or best to be called the Asian Unicorn.
Whoaaa we have a unicorn? Unlike the imaginary unicorn, this saola has two sharp horns.

They said that unicorn is a symbol of purity and grace and can only be seen by those virgins. I have no idea if it was true or not. But they also believed that its horn has the power to heal sickness and purify poisoned water. 

In one of his notebooks Leonardo da Vinci wrote:
"The unicorn, through its intemperance and not knowing how to control itself, for the love it bears to fair maidens forgets its ferocity and wildness; and laying aside all fear it will go up to a seated damsel and go to sleep in her lap, and thus the hunters take it."

Shakespeare scholars describe unicorns being captured by a hunter standing in front of a tree, the unicorn goaded into charging; the hunter would step aside the last moment and the unicorn would embed its horn deeply into the tree.(source)

But today, I glanced through the Yahoo!News and found this article. and strucked too!
