Dog Serves As Tigers' Mom
Raw Video-Dog Nurses Tiger Cubs

"see bottom for link to videos"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A dog at a southeast Kansas zoo has adopted
three tiger cubs abandoned by their mother.

Safari Zoological Park owner Tom Harvey said the tiger cubs were
born Sunday, but the mother had rejected them.

Harvey said the cubs were then put in the care of a golden
retriever.

Puppies take about the same amount of time as tiger cubs to
develop, and Harvey says the adoptive mother just recently weaned
her own puppies.

He says the dog licks, cleans and feeds the cubs.

The Safari Zoological Park specializes in endangered species.

You have about two weeks to see the tiger cubs and their doggy mom. Call (620) 879-2885 for park hours.
