Dog nurses tiger cubs

A safari park in China is using a dog as a wet nurse to a group of tiger cubs after their mother refused to nurse them.

The Qingdao park said the mother tiger apparently did not know to feed her cubs after giving birth to her first litter Monday so workers enlisted the help of the dog, which had recently birthed a litter of puppies, Qilu Evening News reported Monday.

Park employees said the dog had previously been brought in to give milk to baby wolves.

I hope they don't eat the dog when they get bigger.
