A tiger mother lost her cubs from premature labor. Shortly after, she became depressed and her health declined sharply. So they wrapped up piglets in tiger cloth & gave them to the tiger. The tiger now loves these pigs & treats them like her babies.
This pic is real. A polar bear came for multiple days to play with the dogs of a sled team. When the bear first arrived the owner of the dogs thought they were goners. Never once did the bear harm the dogs.
