It all started with the arrival of Lady – a she-goat who happened to be Timur’s ex — and their offspring. They were brought along by Yevgeniya Kovalyova, who revealed that Timur once went by the name Baron and was born near Vladivostok on July 8, 2014.
“His mother was absolutely jet black… He was her only child, so he was well fed and grew up big and strong. A real bully,” Yevgeniya said.
She also spilled the beans about Timur’s family life, saying that Timur was going to wed for the fourth time. He and Lady bore two children and the five others were brought into this world by two different mothers.
“Yevgeniya sold Baron to the safari-park on November 2, 2015, which means that he could have fathered these five kids… We are still going to make sure with a DNA test,” the park’s director Dmitry Mezentsev said.
The pair turned into a huge tourist attraction for Russians due to their unlikely relationship, which involved tiger Amur giving up his bed to goat Timur, with the videos of their peaceful cohabitation going viral on the web.
