There Is A Moral To This Story

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 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?

Take a won't believe your eyes!!

According to Snopes, "This article has been circulating via e-mail since the mid-2006. Even a CBS affiliate KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh ran the same item as a straight news story."

At , the truth is revealed that "the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand features creative shows and displays of animals including these pictures. One of the goals of the zoo is to demonstrate how animals of different species can live peacefully together."

Apart from the textual hogwash, there is a lesson to be learnt from these factual Tiger piglet pictures:

So, "Please tell me one more time..........

Why can't the rest of the World get along?"

The lion shall lay down with the lamb
