Gulf Times - - FRONT PAGE -

A Rus­sian goat named Timur whose un­usual friend­ship with a tiger won him na­tion­wide fame, has died, the di­rec­tor of the sa­fari park where the pair lived, said yes­ter­day. “Timur’s heart stopped beat­ing on Novem­ber 5,” Dmitry Mezent­sev, di­rec­tor of a sa­fari park out­side the Pa­cific port of Vladi­vos­tok, said. The billy goat, be­lieved to be around five years old, was cre­mated and will be buried “with full hon­ours”, his keeper Elvira Golov­ina said.
