In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare

只看照片會覺得很可愛很好笑, 但是看了內文會很感動

這隻動物園裡的老虎早產了, 生下三胞胎的小老虎, 因為太幼小, 全都夭折了。
老虎媽媽在產後的健康居然急速惡化, 但是她的身體並沒有問題。
獸醫研究以後, 認為她是喪子造成的憂鬱症,
只要給她找一些小老虎來代替失去的孩子, 虎媽媽就會好起來。
但是他們聯絡了全美國的動物園, 沒有一個動物園可以提供適齡的老虎寶寶。
獸醫們知道, 動物母親有時候可以接受其他種類動物的寶寶,
原先看圖片, 以為是小豬需要母親, 沒想到是虎媽媽需要孩子…(其實多想想就知道, 小豬要找媽媽, 也不用找上老虎嘛)
最後兩張圖片, 看到虎媽媽站起來走路, 小豬圍在她身下, 真令人感動
 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, 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 wiener pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in
  tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.
