A tiger at a zoo in the Siberian city of Barnaulis is winning hearts on social media after a video of it making “melodious cries” made the rounds of the internet.

The 8-month-old tiger, named Sherhan, is known for its ‘musical cries’ and not the fierce roars which are associated with the big cats.

Zoo officials told ABC News that the male cub is not in pain and makes high-pitched sounds when he is trying to attract attention.
