Beijing Wildlife Park introduced tiger, baby hyenas and a tiny lion to an golden retriever after their mums abandoned them.
Now the golden retriever takes care of them and they look at her like their mother. There is one baby Golden Retriever with them too. Wang Shuo, who works at the zoo, said: “The young white tiger was first who started drinking the dog’s milk before the others joined in.”
Adding: “Soon after, we had a Siberian tiger, an African lion and spotted hyenas come one after another and formed this strange combination.”
Visitors in the zoo can’t believe what they’re seeing, with one saying: “I think it’s incredible. I thought if these animals lived together there would be bloody scenes but as we can see, they’re playing and growing together in harmony.”
The adorable little animals are around two months’ old and there are plans to separate once they hit three months. But, if they carry on playing together and interacting as well as they are now there’s a chance that they stay longer together.
“This isn’t the first time we’ve all gone ‘ahhh’ over unlikely animal friendships – just last week a two-year-old hit headlines after photographs of him alongside a group of monkeys emerged online” one keeper said.
