Mother of the Year!

It’s Fun Friday!

Here is a heart warming story just made for Mother’s Day!

  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,  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.  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 species. The only  orphans  that could be found  quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs.  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?  

Take a look…you won’t believe your eyes!!!
