what a amzing story,a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs,she had so many complications that the cubs were born premature,and due to their tiny size,they died shortly after birth,but then the tiger fell into deep depression,and the doctors decided that if the tiger could surogate another mothers cubs,this would improve the tiger and her health,they searched all around the world and there was no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother tiger,so the vets and doctors decided to try something that they had never tried before in a zoo enviroment,so they quickly found a litter of wealing piglets,the vets and doctors wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed babies around the mother tiger,what a beautiful outcome,the mother tiger now has these little piglets for best friends and her health is much better thanks to them.how cute is this?

Yes, I read about that a while back. Those little pigs looked so cute wrapped up as tigers. I wonder what happened as they got big. Pigs grow fast, so by now, they should be quite large. I'd like to see updated photos on them. Their tiger suits would be much larger, by now.

I saw that story in the paper that my mom sent me from Texas. I thought it was amazing. I would think the tiger would smell the babies and eat them. I was so surprised that she noticed the look of them more than the smell. It was so cute.

I read about this story, and I thought it was too cute for words. Seeing the piglets dressed in tiger clothes *giggles*. My heart breaks for the poor tiger mom that lost her 3 babies, but it seems like the piglets camoflauged as tigers have helped momma!

That's... oddly weird and yet adorable at the same time! I wonder what's going to happen when the little piggies grow up. I hope they aren't made into bacon!

Oh what a lovely story. Thanks for posting it. In these days full of bad news and sad things, it is nice to read something so sweet and uplifting. I think so many people dismiss the feelings of animals (maternal and otherwise) - they are as capable of feeling pain and many deep emotions - just as humans are. Have a nice evening. Rose xxxx

When a mother has that strong a mothering instenct then she will mother most any thing. Have seen cats mother dogs and dogs mother kittens and dogs trying to mother baby chicks abut I think theis one takes the cake.
