USSURIYSK, Russia, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- A visitor to a Russian zoo shared video of her wrestling match with a playful 6-month-old tiger that likely would have gone differently with an older big cat.

Katerina Dulova, who posted a video to YouTube showing her encounter with the feline at the zoo in Ussuriysk, Russia, said 6-month-old Kristal "is a very playful and funny little baby."

The video shows Dulova crying out in amusement rather than fear as the 132-pound tiger playfully pounces on her.

Dulova described the video on Instagram as a "trip to the zoo or the story of how I almost became the prey of a nice little tigrёnka."
