Two liger cubs nursed by dog

Your rating: None Average: 2.4 (5 votes)

BBC News reports that two liger cubs, the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger, are being nursed by a dog at the Xixiakou Wildlife Zoo in China after the cubs' mother stopped feeding them. The ligers are very rare and are believed to only result from matings in captivity.

Why make an article for only two lines?

I dunno (lol)

Just wanted to ask: what should one do if WikiFur password is forgotten? I chose a new password to be e-mailed to me, but when I use it, the system tells me "I tried logging in too many times and must wait more". I have waited a day, but nothing changes. Do I have to wait till the end of time, or what?

Sorry for asking this here, but the FAQ has NOTHING on this.

You have to ask GreenReaper. I have nothing to do with WikiFur.

Unable to log in, how do I do that now??

I have cleared the block cache entry and you should be able to login now.

For the record, you can contact editors on their talk page, regardless of whether you are logged in. WikiFur also has a chat room, a forum and a LiveJournal where you can ask questions.

Thank you, very nice person!

But what caused the problem in the first place?

Your rating: None

The block which you mentioned is meant to be cleared after five minutes (there is a longer one for attempts to create accounts that is 24 hours). Either it was not cleared for some reason, a cached page was incorrectly presented to you rather than sending your request to the actual server, or there is a bug in the code.

This issue has been reported on Dreamhost's MediaWiki hosting as well; I suspect it depends on the server configuration. I'll take a closer look over the weekend.

Perhaps it only needs two lines? Although this is in part what Newsbytes was designed for.

Flayrah used to have many short posts, to the extent that I initially intended to make a special "linked story" submission type for stories which are primarily "go see this story elsewhere". Since 2010 we have tended to have more original news.

This dog is chained to the ground, she's not even allowed to feed her own newborn pups ?

Look at the video again, you will see that she can barely lift her neck and is forced in a lying position, all to benefit two hybrid cats ?

This is not right, you should be more careful or what you report/ advertise on your site

WHY does the voice of reason always have to be anonymous??

This is China. The dog should be glad it's not being fed to the parents - or the visitors!
