Chimp Takes Care Of Tiger Cubs In Thai Zoo! - VIDEO | Care2 Causes

The cubs are motherless, without some mothering they'd probably die, and there are only so many human zoo workers or volunteers. So if this chimp can help out and given a purpose other than sitting around its cage, why not?? They are very intelligent and this chimp probably enjoys doing this. As long as they are not abused or forced to do it, then it is probably a good thing for everyone. And, sure, it may be a bit of a "circus act" to draw in more visitors. Zoos are always doing what they can to draw in people - - - no one coming to the zoo, no more zoo. And zoos may not be perfect but they DO some great work especially with species that are on their way to being extinct. And some tigers breeds are getting close to being gone. Perfect or not, better tigers be in good quality zoos then being gone totally. .
