RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — Two abandoned tiger cubs have found an unlikely new mother at a Brazilian circus.

The two Bengal tiger cubs were rejected by their mother when they were born albinos.

Lili the dog, also a new mother, was offered by her owner as an alternative source of nutrition for the cubs.

It took a couple of tries, but now Lili lets the cubs nurse like they’re her own.

So Lili has joined the circus and now travels with the cubs on the road.

Their diet is supplemented with goat milk to keep up with their insatiable hunger.

The cubs are growing almost 3 ounces a day.
