Mommy Tiger Gives Birth To A Lifeless Cub But Her Motherly Instincts Help It Draw Its First Breath


There are many miracles on this Earth, but there’s nothing more heartwarming and beautiful than the miracle of birth.

The unshakable connection between the mother and the newborn is so strong that it can literally do wonders. It’s simple. A mother’s love is unconditional and pure. There isn’t something stronger and warmer than the love a mother has for her children.

And this story is just proof of that.

Recently, Kaitlyn, the Sumatran tiger from The Australia Zoo gave birth to two tiny male cubs. Things seemed like they are going fine, but then halfway through the procedure, something happened. The first cub that she gave birth to couldn’t breathe.

But, to everyone’s biggest surprise, Kaitlyn didn’t give up on him.

In fact, seeing the tiny cub lying helpless triggered her motherly instincts and she immediately started licking the little baby. This stimulated the cub’s lungs and within moments, the baby started breathing. To make things even cuter, the Australia Zoo caught this whole moment on tape.

Below is the link of the heartwarming birth:

In case you didn’t know, the Sumatran tiger is one of the most critically endangered animals on this planet. It is reported that there are only 400-600 Sumatran tigers in the wilderness. That is the reason why they were carefully observing and monitoring Kaitlyn’s birth.

 “We can’t risk the Sumatran tiger going extinct like its cousins, the Bali and Javan tiger. As a first-time mother, it’s even more important for the zookeepers to watch the birth of Kaitlyn’s cubs closely. They need to be ready to jump in at a moment’s notice if something goes wrong,” The Australia Zoo caretakers stated.

Kaitlyn did not give up and thanks to her love and devotion, her little cub drew his first breath. Like I said… A mother’s love is truly unconditional and eternal.
