Golden Retriever Adopts Tiger Cubs at Kansas Zoo.

CANEY, Kan. - 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 problems with them.

A day later, the mother stopped caring for them. Harvey said the cubs were wandering around, trying to find their birth mother, who wouldn't pay attention to them. That's when the cubs were put in the care of a golden retriever, Harvey said.

Harvey said it's unusual for dogs to care for tiger cubs, but it does happen. He said he has seen reports of pigs nursing cubs in China, and he actually got the golden retriever after his wife saw television accounts of dogs caring for tiger cubs.

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

Anybody notice how the liberal media shifts the attention away from the no-good tiger mother? I think it's pretty safe to assume that she's unemployed and relies on hand outs. Probably lives in government subsidized housing too.

Cass - They live in rural Kansas - the Govt farming subsidies ran out a long time ago, so of course they are beggars and theives....
