Animal activists have reportedly called on an animal park in Russia to separate a goat from a tiger that befriended it instead of eating it.

The goat, since named Timur, was given to the tiger Amur (another name for Siberian tigers) as live food.

The Far Eastern Safari Park, in the Primorsky region bordering the Sea of Japan and North Korea, said it gives predators twice-weekly meals of live animals.

"Tiger Amur knows very well how to hunt goats and rabbits," foreign media reports.

"But recently he came across a goat that he refused to hunt."

Instead, Timur chased Amur out of his sleeping quarters, banishing him to sleeping on the shelter's roof.

Videos uploaded by the park to YouTube show Timur staying close to Amur, following him around the enclosure, and enforcing their new sleeping arrangements.

Timur was named in honour of his bravery, after the lead character in popular Communist-era children's book Timur and His Squad.

He is being fed hay, wheat, feedstuff and water every day.
