Tiger Cubs Adopted by Dog (Video)

Once again, I am delighted by the overwhelming power of motherhood! This primal urge is so strong that over and over again, we see one species of animal willing to mother the young of an entirely different species. In this case, a dog adopts abandoned tiger cubs!

The three cubs were born on November 14th in a Russian Zoo and unfortunately the mother abandoned them. In a desperate attempt to quickly find a replacement mother, the zoo posted an ad on the internet. The position was filled by a white Swiss shepherd that lived nearby – and the match has proved to be very successful. The mama dog hasn’t blinked an eye at nursing three striped felines and the cats are seemingly deeply satisfied with the taste of canine milk.

"It is not only their fellow human beings that the beloved of God must treat with mercy and compassion, rather must they show forth the utmost loving-kindness to every living creature. For in all physical respects, and where the animal spirit is concerned, the selfsame feelings are shared by animal and man ... The feelings are one and the same, whether ye inflict pain on man or on beast. There is no difference here whatever. And indeed ye do worse to harm an animal, for man hath a language, he can lodge a complaint, he can cry out and moan; if injured he can have recourse to the authorities and these will protect him from his aggressor. But the hapless beast is mute, able neither to express its hurt nor take its case to the authorities ... Therefore it is essential that ye show forth the utmost consideration to the animal, and that ye be even kinder to him than to your fellow man.’’
Train your children from their earliest days to be infinitely tender and loving to animals. If an animal be sick, let them try to heal it, if it be hungry, let them feed it, if thirsty, let them quench its thirst, if weary, let them see that it rests."
