An unexpected friendship formed after an orphaned tiger makes friends with a goat that was supposed to be its meal.
Staff members at Bor Wildlife Sanctuary in India released the goat into the tiger’s enclosure, hoping that the animal would make a quick kill.
To their surprise, the male tiger, named Bhangaram, did not kill the goat, even though it was hungry, and instead played with it.
The Times of India reported that at one point, the tiger even playfully pushed the goat into an artificial waterhole.
The friendship lasted two days, and workers finally decided to take the goat out and give the hungry tiger some beef to eat.
