breast feeding and tiger cubs.

ok, let's see if i can get things to show up _here_.

the article:
Update: Tiger Cubs Breastfed by a Woman

The rather bizarre tale of a nursing mother trying to save the life of two Bengal tiger cubs who were rejected by their tigress mother has a sad ending. The tiny black-striped, orange-brown cubs have died.

See a slide show of Hla Htay nursing the tiger cubs. She said, "These cubs are just like my babies." (Warning: Some people may find these images disturbing.) (Photos: NBC4-TV, Southern California)http://www.nbc4.tv/slideshow/news/4413609/detail.html

Reuters and the AFP news service report that 40-year-old Hla Htay, who was nursing her own infant son at the time, answered the call from the Yangon Zoological Garden veterinarian who was desperate to find some way to keep the cubs alive. After the cubs rejected bottles, the cubs were nursed by Htay three times a day. She said she would continue to breastfeed them until they began teething. Her brave, but bizarre, action drew worldwide attention.

The male and female cubs, born on March 17, didn't respond well to the human milk, and as the temperatures soared in Yangon, Myanmar, they grew weaker and became dehydrated. The female died on April 27, and the male died on May 3. "The main causes of death were scorching weather and lack of milk from the natural mother," Dr. Khin Maung Win of the Yangon Zoological Garden told the Myanmar-language Interview Journal. "We did all we could to save them. They were kept in an air-conditioned room, but their livers could not accept human milk," he said. AFP reports that the zoo plans to stuff the cubs and put them on display. Big cats are treasured in Myanmar, which just a year ago created the world's largest tiger reserve.


as i said on the tagboard - i don't find these disturbing. in fact, given that the whole point of the pictures is to show a woman breastfeeding, i think they were pretty discrete. but what do you all think? and if people are disturbed - do you think it is because of the breastfeeding, or the inter-specific nature of same?

some people just freak over anything that hints at procreation, including nursing. Any news org has to protect themselves from vengeful whackos with no life, who attack anyone else for any reason. And then there's the Middle East... :roll:

You can count me among the disturbed. And yes, it is because of the inter-species nature. They were being rather discreet about the whole "woman showing her breasts" part, but seeing a tiger cub hanging off there just makes me go ick. Well, first OW, then ick.

If you replaced the tiger cub with a 90-year-old man, would that be less disturbing?

That would depend on your upbringing.

Your replacing of a 90-year-old man has to do with my upbringing?

Take a little responsibility for your own actions, sirrah! :x

Then take responsibility for someone else's actions then!

You obviously have too much time on your hands, so you need a hobby.
