My cousin, also an animal-lover, sent me the following pictures and story: it seems that in a California zoo, a mother tiger gave birth to triplets, but the babies were premature and they died. So the zoo called other zoos and found some orphaned piglets, who were given to the tiger to raise. Look at the adorable photos and the story seems logical, right?
Ah, but the wary internet user learns to check www.snopes.com before believing anything. And if you check here, http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/tigerpig.asp, you’ll discover that the tiger/piglet story isn’t actually true.
What a shame. It makes a great urban legend.
