    Dog Nurses Tiger Triplets at China Zoo

    Thursday, May 17, 2007
    BEIJING - It's a dog's life for three newborn tiger triplets in eastern China. The cubs, whom officials at the Jinan Paomaling Wild Animal World in Shandong province are so far just calling "One," "Two" and "Three," have been nursed by a dog since they were rejected by their tiger mother shortly after birth, said Paomaling manager Chen Yucai.
    The trio's adoptive mother, a mixed breed farm dog called "Huani," is expected to nurse them for about a month or until their appetites outpace her supply, Chen said.
    Chen said it is common for Chinese zoos to use surrogate dog mothers to nurse rejected tiger cubs and that Huani has nursed tigers before.
    In the past, Paomaling put dog urine on their rejected cub's fur to make the surrogate think she was nursing one of her own puppies but the zoo didn't bother with Huani because she seemed not to mind nursing the tigers, he said.
    "The family is getting along well and seems to enjoy each other," Chen said

    Three newborn tiger triplets have a surprising unusual family arrangement in a Chinese zoo.


    After they were rejected by their mother shortly after their birth 10 days ago, they are being nursed by a generous farm dog instead.

    The unusual adoptive mother is called Hunai and is expected to nurse the cubs at the Jinan Paomaling Wild Animal World in Shandong province for about a month, until their appetites outpace her supply, manager Chen Yucai said.
    Chen said it was common for Chinese zoos to use surrogate dog mothers to nurse rejected tiger cubs and Huani had nursed tigers from Paomaling before.
    So far the cubs have not been named and are simply called "One," "Two" and "Three." Paomaling has previously put dog urine on rejected cubs' fur to make the surrogate think she was nursing her own puppies, but the zoo didn't bother with the urine this time because Huani seemed not to mind nursing the tigers. "The family is getting along well and seems to enjoy each other," Chen said.
