Amur and Timur
Amur and Timur (Russian: Амур и Тимур) are respectively a tiger and a goat who have established an unlikely friendship in a safari park in Primorye in the Far East of Russia. Timur was placed in Amur's enclosure as food but, by his confident behaviour, established a rapport with Amur, which did not eat him. There was an incident of mauling when Timur annoyed Amur by poking him with his horns for hours but, after treatment for shock, Timur recovered. The pair were separated after another fight in 2016 and Timur was moved to the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy (VDNKh) in Moscow. Timur died on November 5, 2019, aged 5.
