An unlikely friendship between a goat and tiger has shocked zoo keepers in Siberia.The zoo keepers threw the goat into the tiger’s den but to their surprise, the animals became friends with the goat even taking over the tiger’s bed. .
But this one brave goat has somehow managed to survive four days without being troubled by the usually carnivorous predator.
“We think that the goat never came across tigers and no-one taught him to be scared of them,” said one of the tiger’s keepers.”He kicked the tiger out of his bedroom and is sleeping on Amur’s ‘bed’ for the fourth night.”
Keepers have now named the goat Timur “out of respect for his bravery”.
“He was just a nameless prey at the point when he entered the cage,” the keeper said.
