Tiger becomes unlikely pals with the goat that was supposed to be his lunch


A goat and tiger at the Primorsky Safari Park in Russia are foregoing the typical predator-prey relationship in exchange for a more progressive and equal one.

Timur the goat was originally intended to be a live meal for Amur the Siberian tiger. However, it seems that upon being released in Amur's enclosure, Timur immediately took charge.

Timur chased Amur out of his sleeping area and established himself as a dominant force to be reckoned with. Since then, Amur has taken to sleeping on the roof while Timur snoozes in his bed.

Timur's brave antics actually earned him his name, which comes from a courageous character in a Russian children's book.

"It's a fitting name for such a fearless animal," the park stated.

Just goes to show: Sometimes confidence can compensate for sharp claws.
