CANEY, Kan. - A dog at a southeast Kansas zoo has adopted three tiger cubs abandoned by their mother. Safari Zoological Park owner Tom Harvey said the tiger cubs were born Sunday, but the mother had problems with them. A day later, the mother stopped caring for them. Harvey said the cubs were wandering around, trying to find their birth mother, who wouldn’t pay attention to them. That’s when the cubs were put in the care of a golden retriever, Harvey said. Harvey said it’s unusual for dogs to care for tiger cubs, but it does happen.

You reckon there will be another "Awww" photo when they get to be five months old and rip that poor dog to shreds?

I thought for a second that dog might have been lying on a terrorist keffiyeh scarf. Thankfully it's clear she's merely providing succor in a way that flies in the face of God's will.

Am I the only one worrying that dog milk might not have exactly the right nutrition for tiger cubs?

Um, why is a Kansan zoo called Safari Park?

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

I still prefer the pigeon adopts monkey story.

Is single parent adoption or fostering even legal in Kansas? Golden retrievers are very popular with lesbians, she may even be Lesbian herself. Someone call Focus on the Family!

Isn't there a constitutional ban in Kansas over trans-species parents? If not there really should be. It's not natural!

"'s unusual for dogs to care for tiger cubs, but it does happen"? He makes it sound like in rare situations, dogs have adopted motherless tiger cubs they found wandering down a street.
