1. Remember this awesome video of a tiger and a goat being best friends from a few months ago?
Taken in the Primorsky Safari Park in Russia, the goat was meant to be a meal for the Siberian tiger named Cupid.
4. In a ~lengthy~ post on Facebook, Krestianov — which we’re pretty sure translates to “Crankypants” — says that all coverage of Timur and Cupid should be banned because it could make kids want to be gay.
Okay, his name actually translates to “peasant” but he really does think that all goat/tiger relations coverages falls under Russia’s infamous “anti-gay propaganda” law. His Facebook post is a copy of a letter to the General Prosecutor’s Office in which he calls for future stories to be banned, worrying that the coverage works to “generate interest in non-traditional sexual relationships.”
6. Krestianov’s bleating is moot for now, it seems, as the park announced in a post online that the two have been temporarily separated so that the goat can undergo veterinary care.
They’re slated to be reunited soon, but officials also worry that with the return of mating season — which could make Cupid’s behavior take a turn — or the possible arrival of several Siberian leopards, their split may be more permanent.
For now, though, let’s bask in the glory of the Bert and Ernie of the taiga.
