An Amazing True Story

In a Californian zoo, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.  

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression.  

I miss my cubs terribly!

The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. This is when the veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. 

Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. But the only orphans that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling piglets.

The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.

But would they become cubs…. OR PORK CHOPS?


Take a look... you won't believe your eyes






Okay, so please tell me ...... why is it then that the rest of us don’t always get on quite so well? The End
