I received these pictures the other day with a touching story about a tiger having lost her cubs shortly after birth in a California zoo. She was melancholy so some newly born piglets were substituted to see if it would bring her out of her depression.
I looked for more information and "snoped it". The pictures are real, but the story is not.
The Snopes story
It seems these pictures were actually taken at the Sirachi Tiger Zoo an hour from Bangkok, Thailand. This zoo is known for antics and displays to amuse the patrons that visit there.
The pictures are delightful, as animal pictures are but we do have to be careful in our internet travels to verify the information we receive.
Take care and God bless.
