Animal World

The tiger cub’s mom rejected him, but, fortunately, he could make a real friendship with puppy

Friendship does not know age, race, ethnicity or religion. Although differences can sometimes separate individuals, often these are the things that unite and create indissoluble bonds. This principle of life is valid for human beings, as well as for animals! Just take for example this Bengal tiger cub, that has found a really special friend – a puppy dog!

The two have a minimal difference in age. The puppy dog ​​is only three weeks older than the tiger cub. Obviously, belong to different species yet they are inseparable!

The male tiger cub Hunter, while the name of the splendid female German Pointer is Chelsea.

They live in the Wildlife Sanctuary under the care of twenty-two-year-old Anthea Michaletos. Life for Hunter was not easy because after coming into the world, his mother rejected him.

“The birth of Hunter must have come at a time when the mother must have felt compromised in some way. And, for this reason she rejected him,” said Anthea. She added that the intervention by the volunteers was necessary because the mother’s behavior was dangerous for the cub.

Despite the misfortune of having to face a difficult separation and the lack of a mother’s affection right from the start, Hunter had the great chance to receive an important gift, namely, that of friendship!

When Anthea took the tiger cub to the Sanctuary, Chelsea immediately went up to him. He welcomed the tiger cub and started a wonderful friendship.

The two play happily in the grass, chasing each other, and learning a lot from each other. However, at the end of the day, volunteers separated and placed the two animals in different cages. Anthea claims that the tiger is making good progress in the company of  four-legged friend who has similar behavior. Together they learn a lot and she has noticed that they become very sad when they are not together.

However, this beautiful friendship is not meant to last forever. When Hunter reaches six months of age, Anthea will be forced to separate them permanently.

In fact, in that age, there is a risk that Hunter will become aggressive towards Chelsea and that he may seriously hurt her.

Already now, the woman has noticed that during their games, the tiger cub often goes for the puppy dog’s throat. However, for the moment, Chelsea has never shown any signs of fear, intolerance or pain when she is in the company of her tiger cub friend.

For now, the two animals, one a tiger cub and the other a puppy dog, can still be together and play with each other.
