Two golden tigers, a snow tiger and white tiger raised by a dog (picture) — 4 Comments

  1. The mothers are captive. Taking away the cubs so early means the mothers are likely to come on oestrus quickly and will breed again. Fostering the cubs on a dog means they will be handled by humans from that early stage (which is impossible if they are left with the mother).

  2. I agree Michael, the backstory to the photo probably isn’t a happy one.

    Where are the mother tigers? Killed by hunters, drugged-up and exploited for ‘visitor experiences’ with tourists? Or is it the usual story at some zoos/sanctuaries, where the mother is often deprived of her off-spring so that staff can hand-raise them to use as ‘ambassadors’.
