It looks like Timur the goat and Amur the tiger are on a break. The animals met after Timur was put in Amur’s enclosure at a Russia wildlife park. Staff figured that eventually, Timur would become a meal for the tiger, but the two ended up becoming friends and somewhat of a couple.
Their romance became a popular news story in Russia, sparking social media conversations and T-shirts celebrating them as an item. That all changed when the goat wouldn’t stop bothering the tiger.
“Finally, the tiger couldn’t hold back, grabbed the goat by the withers and tossed him,” park director Dmitry Mezentsev says. “We decided to put them in different enclosures for a while.” No word on if and when this odd couple will be reunited.
