At Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand, a mother tiger lost her cubs due to premature labour, then became depressed. Her health declined and she was diagnosed with depression. Zoologists wrapped piglets up in tiger-print cloth, and presented them to the mother tiger, who took them in as her own. Her health is back on track.
