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

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

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

Take a won't believe your eyes.

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

Isn't this wonderful, and it's beginning to make me think that animals are smarter than humans in many ways. Certainly more loving when you read something like this, and it is so amazing. Yes, wish the world could get along, it certainly would be a much happier world if it could be so.

Yes, the world would be a much happier place if we could all learn to get together, maybe if enough people read about the love that animals share for each other it might start to sink in. This is really an amazing story, and thank you for sharing it. Hugzzz
