Those piglets were adorable! ^-^ And no, the tiger will probably not eat them. There's been many cases where a carnivore has taken a helpless young animal into its care. There was a mountain lion and a moose, a human girl and wolves, lions and a baby... whatever those weird deer things that lions eat are called, and a bunch of others. Its not cruel, either. Like a previous poster said, they`d just die if they were released. Ever notice how animals generally live longer in human care because there`s not, like, other animals trying to EAT THEM?! And besides, its adorable. <:B BTW... that pig was bred to be kept in captivity for a little while and eventually eaten. It should be glad its not in someones freezer right now. <.< >.>

"this isnt cute its sick. the pig mom was being forced to nurse the tiger cubs by being held in between the two metal bars and the mom tiger was definately not happy. and the tiger encloser was too small."
"Did anyone notice that the pig is basically being held in place? How do you think lil razor sharp teeth feel on her nipples?"
... Actually guys, the has little to do with the tigers. Sows and their young kept in stalls are usually separated by those metal "cages" so that they don't trample, roll over on, or otherwise crush them, as would otherwise happen the space provided... blame commercial farming, not whoever decided to feed tiger cubs via pork.
Also, it may be possible that they`d use a pig to nurse orphaned cubs and the two clips aren`t connected... I dunno though.

Haha...it's all fun and games until the tigers realize their room mates are dinner. Why would they want to do that anyway. I wonder if the pigs will growl and the tigers will oink? Hmmmmm...
