Here are the tiger and goat that the Russians debated were ‘promoting homosexuality’

Russians are actually looking into whether a friendship between a tiger and a goat “promotes homosexuality”.

When Timur the goat was placed in the pen of Siberian tiger Cupid, zookeepers were shocked by the big cat’s reaction. Timur was originally meant as lunch for the feline, but Cupid shocked his carers by befriending the goat instead of tearing him limb from limb.

Their blossoming relationship struck a chord with the Russian public and a video of their antics soon went viral.

One man, however, remained unmoved by the heartwarming story, insisting the duo were in fact breaking the law. Russian lawyer Alexei Krestianov claims media coverage of the unlikely friendship could turn Russian kids gay by “generating interest in non-traditional sexual relationships.” He added that their “non-traditional co-habitation” is “an intrusion into the private lives of underage citizens and covert gay propaganda, as well as an active imposition of homosexuality.”

But given all of the interest in the video, it was reported that the prosecutor’s office would look into the matter. But they may have stepped in too soon, as the situation resolved itself. Despite the tiger having given up his bed for the goat, their relationship soon turned sour.

Their friendship came to an end when the hooved animal head-butted the tiger. And Cupid, apparently unimpressed by this, savaged the goat.

Watch a video charting the unlikely relationship below.

      Here’s the Mathematics. Tiger not eating goat is taboo. Homosexuality is taboo. See? Taboo promotes taboo. *dropping chalk*

  3. This is just a case of “captivity kills the wild cat”. That’s what being caged up can do to a wild animal. Anyways, the thought of it promoting homosexuality is erroneous, and this is coming from a very strong homophobe ?

    • Here’s something else I might add. Having a tiger in a cage is also unnatural. So, the Russian who made the statement should know that they started the abnormalities in the tiger,even if it’s for a good cause.

      *sigh* Whatever am I to do with you, eh Chrome? 🙂

  4. between the goat and the lawyer who mumu pass?

  5. That lawyer has homosexual tendencies he is fighting hard to suppress. Regular people do not look at two male animals of different species tolerating each other’s presence in the same space and think: ‘SEX!’ It takes a man who cannot stay in a room with another man without wanting to rip his pants off to think like that.
