    Thank you, Emma, for your keen eye and pointing that out. Frankly, it wouldn’t surprise us given the highly questionable ethics of any zoo that breeds ligers, which is something we’re critical of here at GlobalAnimal.org. Cross-breeding animals that would never naturally meet to create a spectacle species cubs who must be delivered by C-section with low survival rates and a high incidence of genetic disorders is antithetical to animal welfare and species rehabilitation.We’re with you – if the dog is forcibly positioned and unable to move (e.g., not nurse the hybrid tiger/lion cubs), it should be reported. Thanks again, Emma, for your observation.- Global Animal

    ..and I agree – the mother tiger knew that her babies were not as Nature intended and so stopped nurturing them, knowing it would be kinder for them not to live. Ligers are known to suffer greatly due to their unnatural selection http://www.squidoo.com/ligers

    Please look closely at the video – the nursing bitch is attached to the floor by a clip on her collar to a metal loop in the floor- she is unable to get up unless someone decides to unclip her. I am so sorry to point this out but feel I must. This video is not what it seems or how the makers would like it to be perceived. Look closely, pause the video and you will see the clips. This sweet dog is a nursing slave and the zoo should be reported for animal cruelty.
