Rejected Tiger Cub Finds Comfort In His Puppy Friend’s Hug, And Now Are Inseparable

Spread the love

Baby wild animals can’t survive in the wild without their mother’s care. If they are abandoned by their moms or herds, they will struggle with thirst, hunger, and dangers (from nature and humans). Some can wait until they get help but some poorly, don’t.

Luckily, Hunter the tiger cub doesn’t meet that end. He was born at The Farm Inn Hotel, a wildlife sanctuary in Pretoria, South Africa. However, the baby animal was rejected by its mother just a few days after his birth. His mom showed aggressive behavior towards him. This hurts the cub, physically and mentally.

“We believe that Hunter was born at a time when the female must have felt compromised in some way as she rejected him,” Anthea Michaletos, volunteer at the sanctuary said.

Thankfully, an adorable German Pointer puppy named Chelsea comes to Hunter and befriends him. They get on and form an inseparable bond. The abandoned cub finds love and comfort in his doggy friend.

Friendship comes in all shapes and sizes. The special relationship of Hunter and Chelsea can strongly prove this.

Baby Tiger And Dog Are Best Friends:

Chelsea is only 3 weeks older than Hunter. The pair gets along with each other. They love spending time together, from eating, sleeping to playing. Their favorite game is wrestling – push each other over and jump on. The tiger cub and the puppy have a lot of fun under the caretaker’s supervision.

Chelsea never misses coming to Hunter’s cage and greeting him in the morning. The puppy even becomes sad when she has to separate from her friend.
Although their friendship might end in a few months when Hunter reaches the age of six months, the pair are now still the best friends.
