Tiger and piglets

Sai Mai, a 26-month-old female tiger, plays with baby pigs at a zoo in Thailand’s Chonburi province, 80 kilometers (50 miles) east of Bangkok, on May 7, 2004. The Royal Bengali tigress was born in captivity and breast-fed by a female pig for four months after her birth.

These pictures were taken in Sriracha zoo, 80 km (50 miles) east of the Thai capital Bangkok on 2, July 2004. The zoo is trying to boost visitor numbers by teaching domestic animals such as pigs, and wild animals such as tigers, to live together in harmony from an early age.
