Cubs go ape over playmate
An amazing video capturing the moment when an orangutan starts monkeying around with a trio of tiger cubs has goen viral.
The film shows the orangutan playing with the three baby tigers, picking one up and letting him sit on her shoulder.
She then starts to kiss and cuddle one of the cubs before she feeds him with a bottle of milk while sitting under a tree.
Trouble brewin’ for tourists
Curious visitors to Yellowstone National Park were sent running when a black bear took exception to crowds starting to gather round her cubs.
Park ranger John Kerr shouted: “Keep going. Go. Go!” as some started to disperse and dramatic footage was captured by the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department.
Bob Gibson, of Montana FWP told NBC News: “These tourists were absolutely in danger. Black bears are usually shy of people. But you put them with their cubs and they get really protective. You never want to be between a bear and its cub.”
Rob said the encounter with the cubs, which were believed to be about 13 months old, could have had fatal consequences.
“Had they been the young of the year the mom would have been all over the tourists,” he said.
