Odd animal families entertain viewers

August 17, 2009 One dog may have looked like she got herself a meal, but the dog has actually been raising a piglet. She started nursing the piglet because its real mother didn't have enough milk to feed it.

A farmyard hen also adopted a flock of ducklings, keeping the eggs warm until the ducklings were ready to hatch.

The ducklings now follow their surrogate mother around the farmyard.
