A Bengal tigress at the park gave birth to the three cubs but abandoned them because she was a first-time mother who did not know how to care for her offspring. The staff at the park bought a pig who had just given birth to act as a wet nurse for the cubs.
The tiger cubs are currently getting on well with their piglet brothers.
