tiger + piglet = tiglet


My boyfriend forwarded me an email this morning about a tiger who gave birth to 6 cubs; however, because of complications, they were born prematurely and all died. The trainers and vets at this California zoo noticed that the tigress was declining in health even though nothing was wrong with her physically.

The loss of her babies caused her to suffer from depression.

Veterinarians tried searching for new cubs at various zoos that they could bring in for the mourning mother; however, there were none.

Therefore, they tried to something new: they wrapped little piglets in tiger skin and placed them next to the tigress. The results are too great for words:
