Zoo Art

Sometimes I come across something that just touches my heart. Not so much because of the action, but because of the meaning behind it. This e-mail was one of them and I wanted to share this with you:

In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger, after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine.

The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother.

The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species.

The only 'orphans' that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops ?

Now, please tell me one more time ...
Why can't the rest of the world get along ?

I thought this was very resourceful, it shows that where there is a will, there is a way. Determination and commitment are at the root of all we do or intend to do. If you start a hobby, you can not expect to be a master at it right off the bat. It will take some time to learn the techniques and develop your own style. Practice makes perfect.

BTW, that is a good question: why can't we?
