This is undoubtedly one of the best I have seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Have a fun filled day.PORK CHOPS
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 cub's, 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??
This is the sweetest thing I am seen by far!!! I know I will never see this due to one thing that man kind has that no other animal has--GREED---yes I know there are many other traits but this one has always stood out in my mind. I love the fact that my people learned from the animal kingdom--that trait seem to elude other peoples---but killing each other goes back to the beginning of time. Human behavior is what I have studied all my life and I am still baffled by what I see. I will continue to study and learn--but this was refreshing. Thanks dear Millie
This reminds me a little about a siamese kitten we got when I was a kid. She came from a litter where the mother wasn't lactating. Interesting thing, this basset hound next door was though it hadn't had puppies, so it played surrogate for the kittens. It was odd to watch, but it worked.
Growing Up we once had a husky who would watch over a litter of Kittens that on of our cats had, The cat would come back and swat at the dog a few times and the dog would get up and walk away.
