Tiger cubs

In a zoo in California, 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, 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.

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.

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

The only "orphans" that could be found quickly, were a litter of wiener

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

Would they become cubs or pork chops???

Now, take a look ........ you won't believe your eyes!!!!
