Is it true that a Siberian Tiger can prey on wolves?

I know that wolves don't **** with Siberian Tigers, but I never thought that Tigers would seek wolves for food.

    There's a video online of a cougar on a grapple with a wolf, its canines deep in the suffocating wolfs neck. 

    Cougars will occasionally hunt lone wolfs [as they hunt dogs], but a wolf pack they avoid or climb to escape because numbers make a difference. 

    If a cougar can hunt lone wolfs i guarantee you siberian tigers can. They live along side grey wolfs which are huge, but siberian tigers are also huge.

    Most predators prey on herbivores but it's not uncommon for predators to eat other predators, I think it's unlikely that a tiger would eat a wolf, just kill them to eliminate competition but maybe a starving tiger would eat a wolf, I don't know.

    I would imagine it would be an opportunity thing . Wolves finishing a kill and not being as attentive as usual when a tiger creeps up on them or something like that .
