The photograph shows a female tiger raising a group of piglets.
A forlorn tigress, heartbroken because her own cubs have died, is fooled into adopting a litter of
piglets when zoo wraped them in tiger skins. Such a thing had never been tried before, according to the email which accompained these pictures as they were sent around the world.
This image was taken in 2004 at Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Conburi, Thailand. Although the Sriracha zoo hosts one of the world's most succesful tiger breeding programs unlike most western zoos, it also offers circus and carnival like shows, exibitions and interactions.
