Pictures to Ponder
 

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 species. The only "orphans" that could be found quickly,
were a litter of 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? Take a look........

 

 

 

The world is round and the place
which may seem like the end
may also be only the beginning.
