A mother tiger in Thailand gave birth to triplet cubs. Unfortunately, all three cubs died. The mother unexplainably began to decline in health, including major weight loss. The veterinarians guessed that she might be mourning the loss of her cubs.
They tried to find some substitute tiger cubs, but none were available. Finally, they decided to try something drastic: baby piglets.
It worked! Watch this video of this amazing "cross cultural" experiment.
If they can do it, so can we!
