In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rareset of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due tocomplications in the pregnancy, the cubs were bornprematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortlyafter birth.
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physicallyshe was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of herlitter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate anothermother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country, thedepressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of theright age to introduce to the mourning mother. Theveterinarians decided to try something that had never beentried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of onespecies will take on the care of a different species. Theonly 'orphans' that could be found quickly, were a litter ofweanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the pigletsin tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.Would they become cubs or pork chops?
Now, please tell me one more time...
why can't the rest of the world get along?
...and then, we are called 'humans'!
