Having a ball! Moscow tiger getting ready for FIFA World Cup (VIDEO)
Footage obtained by RT’s Ruptly video agency shows White the tiger getting ready for the big game with his trainer Mikhail Zaretsky on a pitch somewhere in Moscow. Zaretsky looks after several tigers and other large animals, and together, their antics have amassed more than 145,000 fans on his Instagram account.
“That’s not fair, you’re not allowed to use your teeth!” the trainer says. If he makes the team, however, it’s not clear how much of an asset White will be, as the video reveals that the big cat tends to just chew on the ball and lie there.
