This is a story of companionship of predator and prey. In a Thai zoo, a newly born tiger cub is in danger of starving to death because it doesn’t have milk. The poor cub’s mother died just after giving birth to him. Other female tigers in the zoo don’t have any milk. The mother pig accepts him into her litter and began to care for him. However, the cub did not immediately nurse from the pig. The tiger cub views the pig as his mother and stays with her. He eats with her at mealtimes and sleeps with her when they’re full. The tiger has a fast growing rate and it wasn’t long until the tiger and the pig are the same size. Being raised by a pig, he is very much docile and soft. He is not fierce at all and the zoo staff are surprised about him. What a heart touching sight. We are not sure whether the tiger will become fierce as mother nature intended or remain with his mother’s nature.
In a hopeless attempt, the zoo staff put the tiger cub in a mother pig’s cage who had just given birth to a litter of piglets.
But when it saw the other piglets rush at the mother pig to nurse, he rushed too in order to remove his hunger
What a beautiful sight!
Soon, the tiger will be much bigger than the mother pig.
However, the tiger doesn’t have its fierce behavior. He followed his mother’s nature
