First, allow me to begin with a very old story….
The Story of the Tiger and the Donkey
Once upon a time there was a tigress that was about to give birth. One day when she was out hunting she came upon a herd of wild donkeys. She gave chase, and even in her condition, managed to kill one of them, but the stress of the chase forced her into labor, and she died as she gave birth to a male cub. The donkeys, which had run away, returned when they sensed that the danger was over. Approaching the dead tigress, they discovered the newborn cub and adopted him into their herd.
