Tuesday Tiger


It's hard to deny the supreme cuteness of this image - combining the sweet piglet with a tiger. The image is from a zoo in China, where they frequently try a variety of animal stunts to entertain visitors. The image was taken in 2004.

Yes - and there are other photos to go with it. But the facts about it's orgins are creepy.

My silence is as deafening as the roar of a jet engine...

Okay. Went to Snopes. Too weird. Let's keep it cute, ladies. This isn't Land of Weirdo.

It was a little too weird. I didn't know the truth until I went to write something about it. As much as organizations like the AZA are frustrating at times, they help prevent this sort of activity in American zoos.
