Miracle: Adorable Pooch Nurses Two Bengal Tiger Cubs In China

Miracle: Adorable Pooch Nurses Two Bengal Tiger Cubs In China

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Two twin Bengal tigers cubs are being nursed by a dog since their mother does not have enough milk for the cubs in Xinjiang, China.

Since the Bengal tiger mother does not have enough milk for her twin cubs, the parks found a dog mother to wet nurse them. The dog mother has become fond of the twin tigers and the safari park breeder also take good care of them.

According to the safari park staff, one of the twin tigers is of normal color, while the other is all in white." INJIANG, CHINA (CCTV/CNN)

The news is full of mothers who injure or kill their children intentionally or due to criminal negligence.

To counter this daily diet of depressing news I bring you this heartwarming story from China.

This dog is not only man`s best friend; she is also a lifesaver for these two adorable tiger cubs. The precious canine not only lets the cubs nurse, but she looks out for them.

How I wish that some mothers had as much maternal affection for their children as this pooch has for the tiger cubs.

Thanks to the gentle ministrations of the doggie, the cubs are in fantastic health and they will soon meet the public.
