Thousands line up to see tiger-goat odd couple in Russian zoo

A tiger and goat who made headlines last month after becoming unlikely friends have become a massive hit with visitors to the Primorsky Safari Park in Vladivostok, Russia, who have been queueing in their thousands to see the odd couple.

It’s been more than 40 days since the live goat was supposed to be fed to the Siberian tiger as live prey for him to hunt, but the goat managed to befriend the predator rather than become its meal.

When Amur the tiger first opted not to eat Timur the goat, zookeepers removed the live meal from the enclosure. The tiger protested the move however, subsequently roaring through the night following the loss of his new companion Timur.

Over the new year period, thousands have come to see the spectacle, with the Primorsky Safari Park reporting more than 3,000 visitors in a single day to see the tiger and goat.

According to zoo officials, since the pair went viral online, attendance is up 300 per cent while the zoo has installed 16 cameras for a live stream online.

The zoo is now offering a tour, which includes the story of how the pair became friendly and how they have defied experts by remaining friendly in each other's company. So far concerns that the tiger would kill and eat the goat have been proved wrong.
