Amur, a Siberian tiger, lives at a zoo in Russia and isn't known to pass on a chance for a free meal--that is until one day when some live bait woke him from a nap and changed everything we believe about tigers.
In late November, the ferocious feline was chased out of his napping area by a goat, now named Timur (meaning lion) because of his bravery, until he could claim the cozy nook for himself, leaving Amur confused and forced to sleep on the roof.
According to Independent.co.uk, the general director of the Primorsky Safari Park, Dmitry Mezentsev, said, “Amur has never rejected prey before. There was just one case when the goat given to Amur lived through the night. Amur ate him the following morning.”
From then on an unlikely and adorable friendship formed between the two animals. Zoo employees have since cut goats out of Amur's diet and replaced it with other meats, such as rabbit. Now, Amur and his new friend spend their days playing with a ball and going on walks together. So unbelievably sweet!
