Urban Legends ???

A friend sent the tiger piglet story around the other day. It sounds so right and so true. A tigress loses her cubs and to bring her out of depression, the zoo finds babies for her to nurture. As they cannot find any tiger babies, they see how piglets work out.

This story was too touching to not comment about on my blog. So I decided to conduct some further research about the story. Turns out there may be a bit of urban legend in the story. The pictures of the tigress and the piglets getting along are real. The story is just not true.

And as always the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
