Panther strikes up unlikely friendship with Rottweiler

An abandoned panther from a traveling zoo has been adopted by a woman and her pet rottweiler in Siberia.
It might sound like the plot of a heart-warming Disney movie, but this unlikeliest of pairings is actually the real deal - a true story that demonstrates the adaptable nature of both canine and feline.

The young panther - who goes by the name Luna - was born to a travelling zoo, however when her mother rejected the youngster, the zoo found themselves unable to look after her.

When an animal lover named Victoria started visiting the zoo to care for the young cat, therefore, she was eventually given the opportunity to take Luna home with her, which she ultimately did.
The panther quickly struck up a friendship with Victoria's Rottweiler, Venza, and the two have been inseparable ever since, with millions of subscribers following their antics on YouTube and Instagram.

Fans who frequent their social media accounts have delighted in viewing photographs and videos of the pair dressed up for Halloween, rolling about in the snow or frolicking around together in the woods.

"Venza in fact thought that Luna was her cub," said Victoria.

"As soon as the dog saw the panther she started licking her fur, they bonded instantly."

Yes, when the black panther grows up it will eat up a rottweiler.

It's possible. But... they do seem to share a very real bond. The same has happened many times before with humans, and animals which could easily tear them apart.

Possibly but I don't think this will happen because the owner has been looking at long-term options for Luna as she will eventually outgrow her home, but, for now, she's happy pouncing and frolicking with Venza. So eventually Luna will be moving out and I guess this will happen before Luna becomes a possible danger to Venza.

Maybe one day the owner will put the panther in a sanctuary for wild animals when she becomes an adult.

Watch on youtube, cats hunt bears sometimes, I watched Luna and Venza videos, animaus are strong compared to us humans. Take care of the Pitbulls near you instead of Luna who is in Siberia.
