Dog nurses 14 piglets

A Cuban farm dog has been nursing 14 piglets and her own litter of pups.

Farmer Mannorkys Santamaria explained Yeti the pooch is followed around by the young porkers and they feed from her as well as their own mothers, but she does not seem to be bothered about it.

He said: "No one imposed this on the dog. The piglets discovered this on their own and began nursing with her when they turned 15 days old.

"When the piglets ventured outside their pen, it seems they smelled the dog's milk and began screaming at her.

"In the beginning we didn't think the dog would let them suckle, but they insisted so much they ended up nursing with her."
