In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth

to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs.

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

Now, please tell me one more time ...
Why can't the rest of the world get along?
