    Amur the Tiger and Timur the goat are about to become the protagonists of their very own animated movie.

    The administration of the safari park in Primorsky Territory in the Russian Far East has launched three contests for the upcoming animated movie about the adventures of Amur the Tiger and Timur the Goat, according to a statement posted on the park’s official website.

    The citizens of all of the former Soviet republics, along with the residents of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and Lugansk People’s Republic, are invited to participate in the contests for the best artwork and screenplay, as well as to compete for the honor of managing the project. However, only children who are at least five years old and no older than 15 may participate in the artwork competition.

    The authors of the 17 best artworks, as well as the winners of the other two contests, will be awarded with a free tour of the safari park, including a visit to its two star attractions – Amur and Timur.

    The two animals became friends on November 26, 2015 when the goat was thrown into the tiger's cage as his next would-be meal, but instead managed to befriend the predator. The unlikely duo soon became a hit on social media and now everyone can follow them online.
