Friendship of Man and Tiger in Indonesia

It is quite common for people to form close and loving friendships with animals. But it is quite a different matter when that animal is a 27-stone tiger with a fondness for fighting.


Abdullah Sholeh, 31 has formed an unbreakable bond with four-year-old feline Mulan.

The pair are so inseparable, Mr Sholeh often shuns his own bed to sleep alongside the big cat in a rickety outhouse. And Bengal Mulan is even known to ‘mock attack’, hug and kiss her companion when they play in the garden behind their home. However, despite the play fighting, Mulan clearly doesn’t appreciate her strength. As one picture shows, Mr Sholeh was left with a bruised and bloodshot eye after being caught by one of Mulan’s paws.
