Well, this is really an interesting heart touching story between Amur the tiger and Timur the goat (who was initially meant to be Amur’s live food) became fast friends in late November 2015 and in spite of what a lot of predicted the two are still good-naturedly living together. Therefore, at Russia’s Far East Safari Park, the rare duo spend their time playing with one another as they relish a game of hide-and-seek, hunt together, or butt heads for fun.

However, astonishingly, they remained fast friends after Timur (goat) evicted Amur (Tiger) from his shelter during a rainstorm. Though, under all circumstances, this duo has stuck together and even as Amur continues to display his predatory instinct. We still feed Amur live prey twice a week, but we don’t give him goats anymore out of respect for Timur,” zoo director Dmitry Mezentsev told BBC.

At the moment, the question is: what’s stopping Amur from eating the goat that was meant to be his dinner? However, according to the tiger’s caretakers, it all has to do with Timur’s courage. From the time when the goat wasn’t taught to be afraid of tigers, he didn’t show spineless behavior when he was put in Amur’s cage. Therefore, the tiger was tangled and gave up. Thus, it happened once before, another goat pushed back and the tiger decided not to eat him, but once he showed weakness that was it his predator killed him. The situation now not the same and the animals are fast friends.

Moreover, to determine this extraordinary relationship, the Far East Safari Park plans to install as much as 16 cameras for a live stream. Since, the filmmakers “Eleonora Lyubimova” and “Sooyong Park” are also captivated by the tiger and goat’s relationship, which is why they have filmed documentaries featuring the two great creatures. However, based on the coverage Amur and Timur have received thus far, it seems as though they have become a worldwide symbol for finding accord despite differences. Source: My Modernmet
