Now that's one fairly odd parent...

via telegraph.co.uk

Three piglets rests next to their adoptive mother, Sai Mai, an eight-year-old tiger, at the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand's Chonburi Province

What an incongrously touching image! And I wonder whoever thought of making this happen! What became of the piglet's biological mother? More importantly (in the larger rarity scale of things), what became of the tigress' cubs? She's surely had some recently if she's able to nurse...

I first wondered what happened to the tiger's instinct of eating the piglets.

Oh yes - that too, of course! :-)
