A goat has died of ‘natural causes’ four years after forming an unlikely friendship with a Siberian tiger having being fed to it as live prey.

Timur the Russian billy goat was intended to be the big cat’s lunch in 2015 but for some reason, he didn’t quite fancy what was on the menu that day.

Tiger Amur could have killed the goat in an instant but never did and the pair soon became the most extraordinary of friends and playmates. Incredible footage shows the pair playing together at a safari park, in eastern Russia, with Timur bravely head-butting the tiger.

Commentary

Timur, a Billy goat, was supposed to be the lunch for the tiger some 4 years ago, died a natural death.

But the tiger didn’t like his lunch and they became friends, extraordinary friends.

Recently the vet discovered ailments with the goat and now the goat passed away because of natural causes, leaving the tiger alone.
