Goat that was put into a killer cat's lair as lunch survives after the two animals become friends instead

The goat had been intended as the tiger's lunch, but now the pair have become some of the animal kingdom's most unlikely friends.

Staff at a Russian safari park are 'stunned' at the goat's bravery and the Siberian tiger's readiness to make friends with his meal.

Extraordinary images show Amur, the obedient big cat, reduced to resting on the roof of his home, after the brave goat occupied his bed.

'We named the goat Timur - he was just a nameless prey at the point when he entered the cage - out of respect for his bravery.'

Keepers say that every day the tiger and goat take walks together, and appear to be 'friends'.

    Either that tiger doesn't know how to kill her own prey or she is desperate for company. That is saying something, seeing how they are solitary animals.

    This is actually quite sad.
