Animals Can Teach Us Love

I remember seeing these photo's of this very unusual family in 2004 when the tigress lost her litter of cubs and sank into a deep depression, the zoo staff thought that if she could adopt another baby it may well assist her in reclaiming her zest for life. All that was available was these precious little piglets. How loving and tender these photo's are, the contentment is written all over this mothers face and her babies so trusting of her.
I thought at the time, would it have made any difference if the piglets did not have tiger skins on? And was it real tiger skin? For those among us who think that animals are dumb and emotionless creatures photographs like these prove the depth of love this mother has for her family of tiny little scallywags.
