He was supposed to eat it, but instead… he did THIS! WOW!

A Siberian tiger named Amur and a goat named Timur – that had been given to the predator as meal, but ended up as his best friend instead – are now inseparable. They sleep, eat, and even play together, videos posted by zookeepers on YouTube show.

In the latest clip filmed by the park’s director, Dmitry Mezentsev, Amur is seen nuzzling at Timur’s food – hay and vegetables. The tiger is also seen licking and playing with a piece of salt – intended for those with hooves, not paws.
