    Four cubs were born at the Xixiakou Wildlife Zoo earlier this month but only two survived.

    The mother stopped feeding the cubs after a few days so the dog, which had recently had its own puppies, was enlisted to help.

    Ligers are extremely rare and are thought to only be born in captivity.

    Zoo spokesman Cong Wen said it was not clear why the tiger had stopped feeding her cubs, the Associated Press reports.

    But she said that after some initial problems, the pair were feeding well from their canine stepmother.

    Although they are a different species, tigers and lions are able to breed together.

    If that doesn't signal the End of Day's, I don't know what will.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    What happened to the dogs puppies?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    When I first saw that picture I thought it was a trophy mounted on a while :eek:
