Tigress Adopts Piglets As Her Own

(KDKA) Piglets to a tiger would usually be viewed as breakfast in their eyes.

But In California, they’ve become a part of the family.

After a tigresses’ rare set of triplets died after being born prematurely, she fell into a depression.

The zoo keepers became worried and gave her three piglets to take care of.

The little pigs were wrapped in tiger fur in order for mom to adopt them as her own.
