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 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 weaning 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...you won't believe your eyes...
