Mommy & Me: Dog nurses tiger cubs

A Golden Retriever is nursing three white tiger cubs at a zoo in southeast Kansas.

Tom Harvey, owner of the Safari Zoological Park in Caney, said the tiger cubs were born Sunday, but the mother stopped caring for them.

That’s when Harvey turned to Isabella, his Golden Retriever, who had just finished nursing her own pups.

“The timing couldn’t have been any better,” he said.

The Safari Zoological Park is a licensed zoo that opened in 1989 and specializes in endangered species. It’s other residents include leopards, lions, cougars, baboons, ring-tailed lemurs, bears, seven white tigers and two orange tigers.

White tiger breeding is not desirable:

Why are they breeding white tigers or any exotic animal to live its life in captivity? Or is it their intent to sell these animals for performance? What do they do with aging residents? Do they sell them for canned hunts?

I having no liking of and distrust organizations that display exotic animals.
