Tiger raises pigs; Pig raises tigers

Tigers and pigs living together? It sounds unusual, but in Thailand a 6-year old tiger is taking care of some piglets as if they were her own.Saimai lives at a zoo near Bangkok. She has watched the little pigs since she was 2-years old. The tiger, herself, was brought up by a sow.

The piglets are dressed up in tiger outfits for fun, but don't normally wear the costumes. At the same zoo, a sow nurses her own piglets and two cubs!

Officials at the zoo insist that in Thailand it is common for tigers to nurse pigs and vice versa.
