Zoo brings in dog to feed white lion cub neglected by its mother

Posted: Updated:
BEIJING, CHINA - A white lion cub was born recently at a wildlife park in Beijing.    

The cub's mother refused to feed it so the zoo brought in a dog mother that recently had a litter of her own pups.  One of those puppies was also brought along to keep the lion cub company.

A 7-yr.-old lion gave birth to five cubs at the same park just a few days earlier.  This week the five lion cubs opened their eyes. 

So far the lioness has been very protective, on alert when anyone approaches her babies.

It's very rare for a lioness to give birth to five cubs.  Normally the number is two to four. 

The cubs will make their public debut in two months.
